Dance in the Rain



Thunderstorm over Swifts Creek, Australia.

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. "Well, I think I'll braid my hair today."

So she did and she had a wonderful day.


The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. "H-m-m, I think I'll part my hair down the middle today."

So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well, today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail."

So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. "YEAH! I don't have to fix my hair today!"

Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass . . .
It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Hints to remember over the weekend:
  • You're not an island and entirety of yourself. You're just one piece of the universe. One piece of the entire body. Work together, play together, dream, laugh, and pray together.
  • Your conduct can have lasting effects on others. Take stock.
  • Together, a couple, a group, an army are unbreakable.


Here's a paraphrased quote I enjoy:
Writers who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. Their stories will soar on wings like eagles; they will write and not grow weary, and in God's perfect time they will publish and not be turned away.


Blessings.
