Dancing in the Rain

My oldest daughter brought me a gift one day... it was homemade & had this 'tag' tied onto it. 'Life isn't about waiting for the Storm to pass... It's learning to Dance in the Rain!' 
Little did she know that the real gift was the message attached to the nourishing body-scrub she made for me!  
Life can be stormy at times, uncomfortable, messy and uncontrollable... but I have learned  that there can be great good that comes from our lives, even when life isn't perfect.  I have learned to keep going, to keep giving, to keep serving to keep gratefulness close to my heart.  
I have learned to embrace change - even though it's often one of the things I am most afraid of.  My life was turned upside down & everything changed.  I was tempted to be bitter and resentful... but each day I made a choice to embrace all I had that day and jump into whatever God had for me.   There were also things I needed to change - I embraced that too and have begun the journey of learning to Dance in the Rain... as a result, I have found joy in so many things!  I hope that parts and pieces of my blog can and will inspire anyone who reads it.  I am not a writer, I am just me... sharing my heart from time to time.  In the end, my goal is to encourage, inspire and have impact.
