There was a storm last nigh, with very strong wind gusts that were tipping things over and flying them around. I don't know the numbers but I heard the noise when trying to go to sleep.
This morning I stepped out on my patio and found one of the chairs laying on its back, one glass garden ornament broken and several others misplaced.
As I was picking things up, I automatically put things in new places, arranged everything in a new way, like never before. I had no plans to move things around to make my "secret garden" look different until this morning. But as I was doing it, I felt really good!
That's when I realized that weather storms are just like the storms in our life. They bring in the change for the better, help us move in a new direction.
So, here are my 5 reasons to embrace every storm in your life:
Clouds come floating into my life,
no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky.
