The past two months have been an emotional storm as I prepared to close on my house and move. I have learned patience and flexibility. I have learned taking my vitamins and finding time to exercise are more important than usual. I have learned to stop and take a deep breath and say a prayer out loud or in quiet to help me endure. My biggest lesson learned: never, ever move and close on your house two days before Christmas. Peace.
Through the wind, rain and firestorms in nature and in our lives, God brings us through.
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
