These are a collection of Idioms.

Weather the storm

Weather the storm as an idiom means to face obstacles and challenges boldly and without fear.

When life’s situations turn dastardly, I am in a position to weather the storm.

Angry Jesus

When Jesus went into the temple, he saw hawkers and merchants selling their merchandize and he took a chord and made a whip and threw them out saying: ‘this is a house of prayer but you have made it into a den of thieves’.

Angry Jesus as an idiom means a person who stands up for a just cause.

Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violent struggle against the British colonial yoke resembles an angry Jesus.

Blooming Flower

Blooming flower as an idiom means obtaining a large sum of money from unexpected sources.

I hope to get a blooming flower by winning a windfall draw.

olive tree

Lovely piece. We need more angry Jesus. Unfortunately whenever one shows up, they’re shunned, ridiculed, and dehumanised for daring challenging convention and the pride of the powerful. Most probably kill themselves or are killed by those they trusted, or jailed unjustly. “What’s left is what you see.” - Bukowski
