I want to commend

All of you

Who are going through

Difficult times.

For some,

It’s a passing thing.

For others,

It’s a way of life.

And yet

You cope.


I have hit

A bit of turbulence.

Some of it

Of my own making.

There is temptation

To shut down.

To hide away.

To cower in a corner.


I must learn to fly

Into the storm.

To stay strong.

To learn.

To grow.

To become

More adept at soaring

No matter what.

To all who have learned

And are learning

To soar in the storm.

Keep on persevering.

I’m rooting for you.

Even more importantly,

The One who

Calms the storms

Cares for you.

Soar on!

…he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!” (Matthew 8:26-27, NIV)
