Do Dark Clouds Loom Overhead?

by Sherry Riter in Hope

Be still sad heart and cease repining,

behind the clouds the sun is shining;

thy fate is the common fate of all;

into each life some rain must fall

– some days must be dark and dreary.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

No, every day can not be lollipops, flowers or whipped cream and that is why we must all have hope in a brighter tomorrow when ominous dark clouds loom over our lives threatening our peace. Since you know there are going to be bad days, just enjoy the view and cope with them a minute at a time.

Dark clouds in the sky are beautiful in a dark cloud way.

Watch them and you will notice that they are continually moving…eventually they will move so far that the blue sky and bright sunshine will reappear. You can believe me on that one.

Oh, I so much love clouds of any kind. I try to figure what they may resemble. I crate stories out of them and sometimes I am attaching some worries to a cloud knowing it will move on ;-))))
Thanks for being just down the road ;-)))

I love watching the clouds move slowly by. It remeinds me that the world is always turning and we never stay in one place long. If this moment is bad, the next one has the chance to be better.

Today I am kicking the clouds away (it really is overcast here) and letting the sunshine in because it's my birthday! It would be so much if you'd stop by my blog and say hi 🙂
