The rain fell relentlessly, it poured so hard that the leaves and smaller branches outside the shelter were bowed in acceptance of the storm that raged. The winds had picked up, and taller trees were being buffeted by the fierce, determination of the gales that blew over and through them.
Thunder flashed across the sky, down below the water would be churning, the waves demonic, What was happening, she felt nothing. While all around her the world expressed her mood, her pain, the turmoil in her brain… she was a quiet witness, unfeeling to the searing pain within.
Some how, God was protecting her from the wrenching emptiness in her heart, from the cold reality of the moment.
To survive this moment, God had crystalized her heart. Under different skies they had promised never to part, to always, till forever be man, wife,mother,father. she gasped, clutched at her heart, the children, what would she tell the children.
At the thought of the children, there was a sudden change in the air, in the mood, the wind/rain seem to abate, she felt the tear slide gently down her cheek. In the distance she saw a golden glow.
The children would be on their way home now, the skies were clearing, she could make her way back to the house, and no he wouldn’t be there, but she would be…. and the joy of making a home filled with love and laughter, void of the frustrations and disappointments of a “dream” gone bad, would be the making of another chapter, in a world full of promise.
Storms happen…………but they don’t last…………….. Sometimes we have to leave the past behind…….. and move on into the sunshine of another………moment in time.
