Life has been a circus for a while now. The norms have been turned on their ears. Everything has been up in the air for way too long. Folks find it difficult to function when there is much change. They are uncertain and afraid.
There are those who believe the powers that be are maintaining the unrest for a purpose. In America this is foreign. We have not lived under tyranny. We have enjoyed peace and trust in the consistency of our government.
If you are one of those who has lost much because of the government shut downs and the uncertainty, find hope. This is not forever!!! Life is returning to normal. Jobs and consistency are returning.
Look to the future and know good things are ahead. Make plans to enjoy time together with your family and friends. Thanksgiving is coming, Plan to celebrate in a big way, As we come out of the darkness there is so much for which to be thankful! Good things are ahead! Be encouraged!
Choose to see the good in those around you! Look for smiles and sunshine! They are much closer than you think! I wish you blessings and joy as you navigate your life!!! So much of the way things will turn out depends upon the way you choose to see it!
I am reminded of a song from the play Carousel. It has been recorded by too many performers to count. It is an inspiration and encouragement! Listen and find hope and joy in your next step!!
When you walk through a storm Hold your head up high And don't be afraid of the dark At the end of a storm There's a golden sky And the sweet silver song of a lark Walk on through the wind Walk on through the rain Though your dreams be tossed and blown Walk on, walk on With hope in your heart And you'll never walk alone You'll never walk alone Walk on, walk on With hope in your heart And you'll never walk alone You'll never walk alone
