I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Every cloud has a silver lining,” but what does this phrase mean to you—and more important, do you look for the positive outcome in stormy situations? I like to define this phrase as a time in our lives when things seem to be going wrong, but we believe that God does indeed have a plan for us and our difficulties will soon pass. We somehow find the faith that things will be better soon. We look past the storm and realize that every cloud has a silver lining.
This morning I was reflecting on my journey, and it occurred to me that it was several years ago this week that I traveled to an amazing place in nature: Yellowstone National Park! The memories are still so fresh in my mind that it seems like just yesterday. You may recall from my July post “Life Is An Adventure And Meant To Be Explored” that while I adore staying at 5-star hotels, I equally love an adventuresome, rugged trip. Yellowstone proved to be exactly that!
