Beautiful Day

I was running errands yesterday and as I got out of the car to drop some letters in the mailbox a guy said, "Beautiful day." "Yep," I replied. "Better than yesterday," he continued. I got in my car and left. Then I thought of things I should have said in reply. Why don't I ever think of things in time to say them? As I replay the brief conversation in my mind I imagine that instead of quietly getting in the car and driving off, I said: "By the grace of God through Jesus Christ, I'm learning that rain or shine come what may if I'm walking with God it's a beautiful day."
