Ironic that the things we love can give us the most heartache sometimes.
Long ago I had read of a person with constant pain and wondered how in the world could they go on?
Now I know!
For years the photo I choose to use for my profile was a girl sitting in the rain at a train station waiting.
It was me .
looked like me! Why, a while back I even had those shoes! I grew up wearing French berets or Tam O'shanter knit caps in cold weather.
But more, I identified with waiting.
Waiting in the storm.
Waiting to feel just okay,
But that is not going to happen unless God intervenes.
I was waiting for life to happen.
Life doesn't happen. You just live it the best you can with what you have and who you are. You make the best of things as they are.
When I saw this quote in the picture below I knew why I loved the rain and stormy weather: it is a metaphor for my life.
For a long time it was used as a motto on this blog.
But notice that word "love" in "love rainy weather". Do you see?
You can love and enjoy and work and do and give even in the stormy times but it takes wanting to do so.
I am try hard to do that, I don't always succeed but I keep trying.
