I have this saying up on my living room wall and I was looking at it this morning and thought I’d share a bit. I used to say “Why Me?” when things happened in my life, but someone came back to me and said “Why not you?”. I didn’t have an answer to that.
I’ve had a lot of things happen to me. In fact, I would think that I’ve been in the rain more than most people. (My counselor agrees!) I’ve been a caregiver almost all my life starting when my father had a heart attack and my brother had a bad car accident and my mom and sister-in-law had to go to work to keep the family afloat. I came home from school and took care of my niece and nephew, made dinner for everybody and put the kids to bed. I was 15 at the time. It goes on throughout my life. One need after another. My father, my mother, my husband….
I look back at all that I’ve done (and struggled through) and wonder how I even made it through in one piece. With all the changes in my life, some made within hours, I’ve learned to Dance in the Rain. Now I know that my Lord Jesus has always been with me and He guided me through all my past changes. As a result, I’ve grown stronger in my faith and in life in general.
