Sometimes our greatest gifts come wrapped in trials.
Today is a thundering, rainy, lazy day. I love it...for the quietness in the thunder, for the hope in the rain, for the certainty that my Creator is near. I love the gray skies for underneath there is a brilliant blue. I love that sunshine always comes after the rain. I love that I have hope that though I go through great trials in this life, a great gift is waiting. Just like sunshine after rain...my eternity is looming. Bright and refreshing. Someday I'll be at home with my Savior.
Until then, I'll enjoy the rain.
