Weathering the storm

Rain , wind, high tides....after a brief respite in the weather we are back to storm conditions here! Along with all the dire predictions there is also a long term forecast of a very hot summer...

It is a time of personal disaster for many people as they see their homes and gardens over whelmed by forces stronger than them....

"Your God reigns" are the words that stay with me right now but the spelling changes according to my mood....

My own disaster has left me beached in a place of grief but even as I type that I am aware of my good fortune compared to many people...

I have stopped being angry with God now....I am left with a feeling of helpless sorrow....but a determination to not be bowed down by it all.

This week I have to start to go out, to walk again even without my dog....walking a beach always feels quite wrong without a dog...but I am not going to get one....I will just get used to being a dog auntie...

My determination to get out and walk is however slightly dented by the wall of rain..presently falling outside...

It's one of those times when life and weather coincide...I am just trying not to become a shipwreck. The ancient wrecks visible at very low water remind me of the consequences of sinking without trace...

I will, with the help of God take a safe course through the storm. Where this journey will take me I don't know...but like every other low point of my life I know that whatever comes next will be treated as a new adventure....and let no one think that being old is an obstacle to this...it might just slow me down a little...but not for long. God willing.
