Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time.  Miguel Angel Ruiz

Have you been thrown any unexpected curves lately?  How do you handle them?  It is your reaction that determines the outcome, whether you can find the good in it or not.  With this new living arrangement we are still on the 'honeymoon' with occasional glitches that make us take cover and want to think about what was ...before.  We are committed to stay this course and continue to find the good in each day with what we are given. So hard for me even at my age to remember God has the full power to transform anything in our lives. 

Often times darkness can mark a new beginning or a time of transformation. Out of what was... something new will emerge. Time in darkness is an important and essential part of the journey and process in our life. We were in darkness in the womb before birth. That had to be traumatic, but we do not really remember it. 

Jesus knew darkness in the tomb following his death.... but from it came the promise of eternal life. So we must learn to move through our earthly challenges...even the hard ones, expecting good to be revealed through the process. If darkness overcomes you seek a new wisdom, find a new way and emerge a new creation.

I can see the light... but the darkness still surrounds me.  Laurie

He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains. Psalm 107:14
