Dancing in the rain

Blueberries, blue cheese, blue coffee

“What are you doing tomorrow?” My husband texted me. I was alone for the weekend as Michael was “Island cooking” “Pasta & garlic bread, burgers, pancakes, grilled cheese, and french toast.” Was his response to my what’s cooking?
While my dear man was in his element with no carbohydrate restrictions, what was I going to do on this day to myself?
“You can wander through the market” was the next text. Yes! (He doesn’t enjoy market days as I do).
I am discovering that I don’t enjoy “lots of time to myself” as I used to. People chatting in the hallway of our apartment complex, contruction workers noisey activity and conversing as they build, are a comfort to me: I’m not alone! Focusing on myself too much brings the blues.
“Good morning. Have a good time at the market.” Was the cheery text this morning.

And a good time I had indeed. After interesting conversations with venders, a walk to and from the market observing frisbee golfers amongst the lawns and trees of her majesty’s park and a cup of coffee, I realized all my purchases were blue! (Water buffalo blue cheese, fresh blueberries and coffee from Blue Parrot Cafe)
As I entered our complex one of the many artfully displayed sayings caught my eye: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass: It’s about dancing in the rain!”
I am so thankful that I can dance in the rainy blue days! “And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18 TPT
