So, I'm not a morning person. It's not something I am not ashamed of, but it's definitely something I claim to be, but clearly, am not. I am a coffee person. Mornings without coffee bring my frustration and exhaustion to a boiling point.

This morning I arrived at the coffee shop a little early. I thought I would get my work done. I actually thought I was pretty peppy despite the fact I opened our store before God opened day His. Let me preface this story with the fact that I get irritated when I am tired. It's a flaw, but it's definitely something I deal with. I get irritated at people walking slow/coming at all, basically anything. I also don't think clearly and frequently forget I have scones cooking or that I need to open the register before my first customer. Today wasn't out of the ordinary. I was irritated and forgetful.

I went outside for my daily cup of coffee in the fresh air and the sun was so bright! I literally said, " Stupid Sun, you are way brighter than you ever need to be! You need to go behind a cloud!" Yes, if your wondering I did throw a hissy fit over the fact that the sun was bright.

Through that immature spout of emotion this morning, I realized something...

Sometimes I throw a fit over the fact that the Son is to bright for me. Sometimes he is glaring so dead in my eyes that I want to go back to be the way I was, because it's more comfortable.

Today in my mini rampage I forgot to feel the warmth that comes from the sun. I didn't see the beauty. I felt uncomfortable

How often do I miss the beauty and the warmth of the Lord for the sack of my comfortability?
