Ever notice how through the storm, the crisis, the hardships, the pain, the fear, the worry, the doubt, the breakup, the breakdown, the consequence, the suffering, the epidemic, the pandemic and or the doubt, the story ultimately remains the same? We’ve heard these testimonies or sayings before right?
“If it wasn’t for my past, I wouldn’t be the person I am today!”
“I’m not where I’m supposed to be, but thank God I’m not the person I used to be!
“When life gives you lemons . . .”
Here’s my point. It is in the trial, the story and that reflection, where we realize once again that life somehow and always “finds a way.” Why? Because life is a universal law! And as such, we must never forget while the storm is upon us, the purpose of our creation remains the same.
Till the ground today, for the harvest of tomorrow. No matter what the storm, if you have breath within your body — live, love, plan and prepare because, unless you expect to have lemons for the rest of your life, you’d best be prepared for the day when the sugarcane fields run dry.
Think About it.
