Sunshine and Clouds

Oh what a whirlwind September is turning out to be.
And not a good on either.

A rip everything apart and toss it all about kind of whirlwind.

My oldest is the grip of a major illness that has derailed him for the past three weeks.

Lots of meds and several doctors visits later we still ended up in the ER last night after he stopped breathing for a few moments.

That was after I had been in Urgent Care with our middle son, who's eyes mysteriously swelled shut last night right about dinner time.

Yes, for those of you keeping score at home, that was two trips in one night.

The physical and emotional toll all this can take on your body and spirit can't be underestimated.

My precious girl was sitting at the table drawing.

She made a lovely little scene, complete with bright sunshine.

Nothing to unusual for a little girl.

What struck me though was when she took a grey crayon and added some big, fluffy clouds.

So, I asked why she was adding those.

Her reply took my breath away.

"Momma there is always some clouds with the sunshine.  We just have to remember the sun is still always there."

Truth from the little people of life.

Even when life is bearing down on us, wearing us down and seemingly never going to stop.

The sun anD-THE SON- is always there.

He sees. He hears. He knows. He understands.

Choose to believe.

I am today, even when it's difficult. I will believe that even when the clouds roll in, the SON will always shine through.
