Everything is not always joy and light. Even if it is. Despite the rapturous reactions of people around me today, I am determined to be a curmudgeon and contrarian. Sometimes even the truth of blessings and amazing grace is not enough to penetrate the storm within.
So it is. In these times of raging seas and surging whitecaps of confusion, it is enough to hold on for dear life and wait for the storm to subside.
And as with cycles and storms, they can not last forever.
