‘Life is not waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain’.
(Painting and card by Lesley Hollingworth)
A friend, Marilyn, gave me this card last week and it has really blessed me.
I often find myself praying for the storm to pass, but it is a limiting attitude and now I realise that I also want to learn to dance in the rain!
As I have meditated on this thought, I realise that it is not just storms that I wait for to pass, but in many ways I while away my life, waiting for work, tasks, challenges, busy-ness and all manner of events to pass – waiting eagerly for ‘ME-TIME’, which is much appreciated – but meanwhile missing the blessings and joy of the day.
I want to dance in the rain, but also live in the abundance of life in every moment of the day.
Let us learn to dance with each other in the rain, in each of our moments, and in the joy of love.
