If you stop for a minute, and see what beauty nature creates, you may find a new appreciation for the planet we live on, but also for your life.
We can see the change from a clear blue sky to rolling dark grey clouds, each in unique formation. They bring thunder, lightening, wind, noise and power. Strength in it’s presence, yet peace in its beauty.
Even though is can be dangerous, it can but so amazingly mesmerizing.
Storms come and go, they can create issues, but in the end they pass. And just like in life we face hurdles like storms, which can be scary, noisy and unpredictable. But remember to always see the beauty in why this happens, and how it happens, but also the sun that shines when it passes.
With each storm that you experience, will you stay in fear, or will you appreciate its beauty?
During our drive last night to look at many of the Christmas decorations in the neighbourhoods surrounding ours, we also were a bit in shock to see so many homes that are still boarded up or in the midst of clean up from the September tornado & microcell storms that touched down in our area so randomly. Definitely made us feel very lucky & thankful for the warm home we have. So very grateful to our community that keep supporting those whom are still rebuilding or lost everything in the blink of an eye this September. My family was safe even though we live in some of the areas hardest hit, but it still rocks me to the core to see the destruction the houses & trees in the storm’s path are still suffering from. #Christmas#decoration#drive#gratitude#Ottawa#Tornado#storms#trees#damages#destruction#darkness#light#edited#photo#September2018#December#December2018#latergram
The wind and rain in Ireland is pretty crazy. Yesterday there were two heavy rainstorms that blew in two completely opposite directions, but both brought plenty of rain and obviously loads of wind. We thought We knew what wind was like till we moved here, but here is a completely different ballgame. Where is the windiest place you have been? Do you enjoy the wind and the beauty it can create or do you you dislike it?
As I reflect on last week while outside today, I remind my self that one of the biggest things I have learned in the last several years is leaning and trusting our creator and giving 100% everything unto him. ~~~~~ Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
I’ve been away for awhile. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. ✨
This last month and a half has been horrible. I go numb. I hide behind a smile. I cry on my way home from work. I’ve had nightmares that take over my body and brain at night. I lie to myself daily it seems. ✨
Losing a sibling is something I wasn’t ready to experience. My cousin even said we never picture it happening because siblings are people we are supposed to go through our whole life with. It’s been rough. That’s for sure. ✨
This year has been nothing but amazing, and I’m still looking at the positives. But damn. I’m ready for this hell storm to be over and finally see the rainbow.
