This picture isn't really very pretty - but it is real - I took it one afternoon on my way back from shipping some orders for A Girl's Gotta Spa! What do you see when you look at it? I mean really look at it. Aside from it not being not very Pinteresty or Instagram-worthy, of course.
I see myself traveling a road of distraction - signs trying to grab my attention, the busyness of others. I see a storm overhead, at times coming down hard and other times easier to navigate with caution.
I see the light up ahead peeking through white fluffy clouds and blue skies. It's within reach, but the darkness that is above me makes it appear further away than I think. But keeping my eyes fixed on my goal of making it out of the storm, intact, helps me to weather the storm and arrive at my destination - home.
It's certainly a metaphor for the difficulties of life - major and what may seem insurmountable. But you will get through it. Day by day. I just wanted to encourage you today. You will weather the storms of life when you stay focused on what's important and not the distractions that are trying to avert your eyes.
