Nothing happens in life by accident, nothing occurs by chance. Nothing takes place without producing the opportunity for real and lasting benefit to you. The perfection of every moment may not be apparent to you, yet that will make the moment no less perfect.

I have friends who are going through a crisis at the moment and they are having a difficult time dealing with it.  Being who I am, I’m remaining positive for them, attempting to explain to them that while you’re in that storm (I know! I know! That storm metaphor is getting old rather quickly.)  it is very difficult to navigate.  You don’t see how you’re ever going to find land again.  Eventually, however, land does appear, the clouds do part and ninety percent of the time you come through the storm feeling refreshed, realizing that WOW, though you were in rough seas at the time now you can look back and see the blessings.

You may not understand why you went through the storm but if you trust in divine guidance everything always works out.  The benefit is ALWAYS there.  Look for for the blessings and you’ll surely find them.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
