A few years ago, my son read in a book that Mount Rainier is a reasonably accurate weather predictor. The rule of thumb is if the mountain has clouds over it, there either was rain in the last 36 hours or there will be rain in the next 36 hours. In this picture there is a small cloud over the mountain. Sure enough, it rained the next day. The color in the leaves also predicts that cooler weather is coming.

The Bible gives us valuable information about the social weather in the world. It is disheartening to see greed and deceit so strongly embedded in the world, but we know that God predicted it and has a plan.

As we head into fall let’s remember to have warm hearts, positive attitudes, and gratefulness.
