It’s Only Temporary

Little Fears came out with a new t-shirt.

I saw this shirt on Wednesday, in the midst of a wildly rainy day. Knowing my flower garden would love the rain, I wondered what storm other’s may be going through. You know…the storms of life.

My divorce was a three year storm.

Breast Cancer was a two year storm.

But there’s something I learned about storms. They don’t last forever. We face them and get through them. It only gets better on the other side.

Plus, ‘it’s only temporary’. These three words bring comfort during storms.

I first heard them as I was walking through Breast Cancer. When my hair fell out, and I lost weight during Chemo my appearance changed but I was told, ‘it’s only temporary.’

It’s a small phrase holding a big truth.

You see lovely, it wasn’t the end of the road. It was all a part of the journey.

I walked outside this morning to see if any damage was done by the storm, and all I saw was growth.

This plant doubled in size overnight. The sun is shining and with time it will be in full bloom.

Little Fears is right. No rain no flowers.

If you’re in the midst of a storm, just remember. It’s only temporary.

  1. We all have our storms and after the rain comes the sun to lead us on once more with hope. I love storms heavy rain so much cleansing physical the earth and spiritual within me. Then the blossoms come out blooming. We all do this blossom after the storm. Bless you
