It’s been a while since I posted on the Sky and Sea Tales series. For those who don’t know much about it, I decided a while ago to share some of the memories that are very dear to me, especially from when I worked as an MWD Engineer out at sea.
Today, I’m happy to share this post from the series, and this one speaks about life.
“Hello, Alexa. What’s the weather forecast for today?”
“Currently, it’s 20 degrees with clear skies and sun. Today you can expect a partly sunny weather with a high of 26 degrees and a low of 20 degrees”
You jump out of bed feeling the sun without seeing it. Your hopes are high that the day would bring all the good life has to offer. Bath time. Breakfast. Out the door with no care in the world. Standing at the bus stop, you see a flash of light in the sky, a loud bang follows in seconds and without warning, the heavens are opened and the rain that moved Noah’s Ark pours from the sky, all on you.
“Didn’t Alexa say it would be a sunny day?”
Life is full of ups and downs, of stormy clouds and bright skies. One minute we’re jolly and the next we’re blue. There are no warning signs to woes that befall us, they come when we don’t expect them and many times leave the way they came.
But as uncomfortable as these down times are, our desire that life brings us only bright skies would deny the earth of its well-needed nourishment that comes with the rains . . . how then would we survive if there was a drought?
Every season is as important as the next. Don’t waste anyone whilst waiting for the next.
