Sunshine Before the Rain

It's a bit cloudy outside my window this morning. The sun peeks through every so often, and when it does~it is bright! We're expecting rain this afternoon. There is a front headed our way so there will definitely be a change of some type. So while everything is clear and we can see, we know we must prepare for the rain or the storm. It's a good thing when we can see the storms of life coming. Some get everything ready and others still don't prepare. But what about those storms that pop up out of nowhere? The ones where we're caught unprepared. Do we run for shelter or do we let the rain wash over us? People handle life's storms in different ways. I guess there isn't necessarily a "right" way, but I do believe there are good and bad ways.

Lord, let us see you, our light in the darkness. Amen.

A beautiful post. I love the symbolism. Most of the time, when a storm comes, I run for shelter - the shelter that God provides. And I hang on for dear life!! God bless.
