While storms rage outside
Side-by-side with thankful hearts
Safely rest inside
* * *
In any storm of life, be it physical, emotional, or existential, we have to counter the violence and confusion around us with the strength we draw from inside ourselves, by our trust and faith and knowing we are safe.
You can lose your life in a storm, we cannot rule that out, but we can have confidence that we will meet the challenge with all that we are and all that we have become.
There is a perfect balance here: outside side-by-side inside
And be thankful. A thankful heart makes us confident and a confident heart is thankful.
Endure the storm.
