Time has been escaping me; I am always amazed when I go to post and it has been over a week. I wonder, what have I been doing that trumps this thing I love. The answer is simple. Avoiding myself ~ which can be pretty dangerous, since you know, I am myself.
I went to the beach last week and got caught in the rain. At first, I didn’t understand. It was such an effort to gather the troops and get to the beach and then the sky opens up on us. But, then a rainbow appeared and as I pointed it out to my nephew I could do nothing but smile.
We ran for cover in a frenzy and as we were looking for a place to grab a bite to eat and let the rain pass. Then we saw another. Two rainbows in the same afternoon; the second brighter and more vivid than the first. We could see the the colorful prism from end to end, creating a full arch in the sky.
The vision spoke to me and it said “how dare you ask why?” The answers will be revealed; your ailments will be healed. You will be more than alright.
I am an eternal optimist. Circumstance may pull me outside of myself for a moment but I always come back to faith. I believe in the good in life. When I start to forget, Mother Nature all but slaps me in the face with evidence that I am right to have hope.
So through these break ups and fake ups I am going through I cling to this side of me. The side that believes, the side that loves, the side that knows truth about what is important. I see the glory. Taste the rainbow with me.
