In times of peril and of strife, when troubled waters begin to rise, and tears begin to fall like raindrops from the heavens, and when darkness fills the sky with dread, do not despair or rage against the cold and lonely fear that takes your breath away.

WEATHERING THE STORM

By Al Garcia

In times of peril and of strife, when troubled waters begin to rise, and tears begin to fall like raindrops from the heavens, and when darkness fills the sky with dread, do not despair or rage against the cold and lonely fear that takes your breath away.

Do not let the weariness of helplessness diminish you or weaken you.  Let the morning rays of hope break through the darkness of the approaching day, and let the sunshine shed its light upon the fearlessness that lies beneath the grief and sorrow that cradled you to sleep.

Do not let the approaching raging waters destroy the certainty of faith.  For weathering the storm requires three elements of faith:  trusting and believing in the IMPOSSIBLE, imaging and conceiving of the IMPROBABLE, and expecting the INCREDIBLE -- the brilliance of a rainbow at the end of the storm.

Let the troubled waters flow and surge and ebb.  Let the healing waves of time begin to heal the wounds and tears that will be left behind the swirling human storm.  And when morning breaks, the calm will overtake the turbulence and chaos. 

We will cross the troubled waters, weathering the storm.  Stronger than before.  Greater than we were.  Humbler than the arrogance of our past.

We will survive . . .
