|Is this Life or is this just a long Thunderstorm?|
The darkness moves in slowly and squeezes the light out of existence. With the embrace of darkness overcoming the world, a cold chill runs through your body. With every hair on your bare arm stimulated, you realize that without the light there can be no warmth. A sudden drop of wetness trickles down your face. You run for protection but there is none around. You realize that you will have to endure this darkness and coldness alone. Time passes without you knowing how long, has it been weeks, days, or hours? The loneliness overcomes your hope of seeing the light again. You sink to the ground and curl up in a tight ball and lower your head asking God for a small glean of light. As to answer your prayers the wetness on your face slows. You look up to the heavens and you see a ray of light. A strong bright light cracks through the darkness. With the ray of light comes strength you thought long gone. You stand in awe at the sight. That one ray of light has multiplied ten folds. A smile comes to your face. The light has finally over come the dreaded darkness. You feel the warmth of the light on your face. You embrace it with all your heart. You say a silent pray and thank God for watching over you. As if to say you are welcome, a shining rainbow appears. Now ask yourself one question. Is this a thunderstorm or is this your life? Written by: Jack R Frances Tweet
