They roll in and out of our lives, sometimes leaving behind destruction that takes much time to heal. Some are quick, they discharge a few bursts of energy and are gone. Others take their time, rolling in, building power and then releasing it in slow motion. Some involve rainbows and even if the present is difficult, there’s a promise of better days that’s easy to see. But maybe there is nothing but dark, ominous clouds in every direction and it’s hard to see an end to all the sorrow and pain. On those days you want nothing more than to stay inside where it’s warm and dry, to take sanctuary from the wind and rain. Perhaps you can avoid the storm for a moment but eventually you have to confront it. Just remember that while it’s difficult now, the forecast won’t always be so dismal. Sunny skies will come again.
