On This Gray & Mizzly Day

On this gray & mizzly day I sit and contemplate life and its natural movements from birth to death. Every day the movement continues its miraculous and mysterious ebb & flow that in one motion brings incredible joy and in another overwhelming sadness.

This week my family struggles through the aftermath of that crashing wave of death — inevitable, but always a stunning crash of painful reality, as in an unpredicted hurricane. We are tossed and turned and often turned upside down, struggling to regain footing after the storm has passed.

Life is so mysteriously wonderful — filled with things that uplift our spirits and others that teach us lessons, plant precious memories, and create unexpected ties that bind.

As humans,  we naturally look forward to good winds and sunny days, but we are never ready for heavy rains and roaring winds at the other end of the spectrum; that too just seems like a natural part of our ebb & flow.

God grant us acceptance for those things we can not change…
