It’s a dreary day full of gloomy weather. The clouds hang low and cluster together, filling the sky. You sit in your airplane seat, watching the rain that has been threatening to make an appearance begin to whip against your window. It is cold and simply miserable. It feels as though the sun is shining nowhere.
And then, the plane takes off, and as it climbs through the clouds, you are suspended in a sea of dark grey…and then lighter grey…and then, the plane lifts itself above the clouds and in the blink of an eye, the world is once again bathed in sunshine and blue skies.
And we marvel that it was there all along.
Clouds come into our Life all the time. They show up in the form of problems and difficulties and obstacles. They tend to cluster together, because, well, that’s what clouds do. And sometimes we experience so many of them, that it feels as though the sun will never shine again.
For the sun is always there. Always. All the clouds can do is hide its light for awhile, until we rise above them to find the blue skies again.
