I am not sure who to credit for this little quote, no one seems to be taking credit for it on the internet. So if anyone knows, feel free to help me out here.
It's one that I think speaks volumes about seeing events as adverse on the surface, but in reality being necessary for the maintenance of life. There are many such things we can list, but there is one that can serve as a great analogy for all of the others:
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Unknown
We need water to sustain out physical lives, our bodies are about 90% water. Rain brings us the water of life.
So the next time the rain spoils your fishing trip to the lake, just remember something. Without the rain, there would be no lake. Without the rain, there would be nothing but a vast desert expanse, incapable of sustaining the kinds of life we need to survive.
The next time a storm in life comes our way, remember that it brings us a vital resource we cannot live without. So if nothing else, let us all dance in our hearts and be glad.
