Floodwaters in Life

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” ― Kahlil Gibran

There have been quite a few reports of heavy rain in many parts of the country lately. Gully washers, deluge, monsoon, torrent, sheets and drencher kinds of rain. So much rain you would think Noah is building another boat.

It could be easy for one to get depressed over the amount of wet and destructive results when it rains so much. And to be sure, there have been deaths and property loss. The news reports are overwhelming at times in the misery and pain that ...

... we run and hide our heads.

Life can be full of rain such as unexpected bills, relationship misunderstandings, illness or a multitude of other possibilities. There can be so many negative things going on in life it becomes all believe in.

... yet the sun shines behind those clouds.

We can look for the things in life which do shine brightly. The smile of a child, the warm handshake of a friend, a cup of coffee or any one of many things. And in those moments of sunshine ...

... we can slip into the shade and sip our lemonade.

So let it rain, for the sun remains behind the clouds and will once again shine. There are days of happiness in store for you. The rain comes and the rain goes in our life. The flowers will bloom, the grass will grow and your wet clothes will dry.

... that when it rains and shines, it's just a state of mind?

Stay inspired my friends!
