Teacup Storms

On occasion, I receive spam in my Blog comments. You can usually tell what is spam as the comments that are associated with them don’t make any sense.

In one of my previous blogs on Natural Remedies, I received a comment that said “A Storm in a Teacup.” Hmmm … it wasn’t relevant to what I said so I dismissed it as spam.

However, the thought intrigued me. A storm in a teacup. Sometimes that’s what life feels like. We go round and round circling and really not getting anywhere. Friends get sick and die, people lose their jobs, alcohol or drugs destroy relationships — round and round, every human on this earth is impacted for good or for bad.

The world can seem hopeless sometimes but I have to keep my eyes looking up.

A friend of mine recently passed away. She was very dear to me and befriended my family many years ago. In talking with her husband this week who is distraught and grieving deeply, he told me “she’s buried in a $200 pink nightie that our daughter gave her for Christmas one year along with a matching robe.”

She always looked good in pink.

To lighten the moment, I said to him “well then, at the 2nd coming we’ll have to look for pink in the clouds so we can spot her.” We both laughed.

I’m glad I have the hope of the 2nd coming. Teacup storms don’t bother me as much.

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:17
