“There is a rift in our society that is deepening by the day. Within that rift there is light trying desperately to part the clouds we have created. Focus on the the light and let it shine to dispel our darkening clouds.” – Ed Lehming

These are indeed troubling times and I am constantly reminded by the natural world around me that nothing is permanent. Clouds roll in and clouds roll out, there are rainy days and sunny days. All these phenomenon are placed before us and we have a choice on which we focus on.

I could focus on the dark clouds that churn and roil above my head, but I choose the brightness beyond, knowing the storm will not stay. Without the storm, we would take the brightness for granted, as we so often do. The storm too has a purpose.
