Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

As I begin my day, with my husband, our Great Dane, prayer, and coffee, it’s a cool, breezy (almost spring), SOFT morning.

I am reminded of a dear, funny, brilliant friend, Buck Majors, from the days on our 55-acre farm in Washington.

He was a strong logger who “sailed the day, “meaning he worked every day except in the wind (falling trees). He loved life and had fun sayings for everything.

My favorite was on gray, even light rain days he called them, “Soft Days.”

If you think of it, cool gray days should be called “Soft Days.” They’re usually breezy, comfortable weather and easy on the eyes for fishing, traveling or gardening.

You can think of more activities, but most people think of them as nasty or depressing because they can’t see the sunshine. It’s there, just covered up.

That one little saying and the Bible changed my attitude about weather.

Also, the Bible reminds us how Jesus was in a boat with His disciples when a storm came on, suddenly, but He calmed the storm.

Make sure you’re in the boat with Jesus, like His disciples, and you’ll always be safe.

Ask Him to be your Lord and Savior, now.

The Bible has a few but profound places where It talks about “Soft” from our speech to clothing and keeping a soft heart.

Proverbs 15:1 Amplified Bible: “A soft answer turns away wrath (anger).” Nowadays texting might need soft answers.

Proverbs 25:15 Amplified Bible: “Judges, rulers and wise men used soft speech to interrogate, pacify and teach, breaking down the most bonelike resistance, sometimes, in listeners.”

Matthew 11:8 Amplified Bible: Jesus said, “Behold, those who wear soft clothing are in the houses of Kings.”

If He’s your King, your house is His and feel free to wear soft clothing, better than stiff or scratchy.

So, enjoy all the “Soft Days” and remember, it’s all God’s weather.
