#WeeklySmile is a weekly link-up event hosted by Trent McDonald, with the purpose of spreading smiles and making the week a little brighter.
It was Mother’s Day, and all morning long the sky was drear and overcast. When we came home from church, a break in the clouds finally let blue sky and sunshine through. Glad to see it, me and my mom went outside to our flowerbed near the road, and the instant we got near to see how the plants were doing, a torrent of rain pelted down on us from a single large cloud overhead. We ran (I limped with my still-sore foot 😉 ), shouting in fun, and took cover in the doorway as the beating rain shimmered down with the sunlight.
One of my favorite things is when it’s raining and the sun is still out, making everything shine and glow with new life. It was a simple moment, but this reminded me that in life, when things are dreary or painful, and it feels like everything is raining down around you, there is a ray of sunlight somewhere up there waiting to shine down on you. And when the clouds finally part, you can bath in its warmth and life once more.
Hope, faith, love.
