A short Story.  A day for fishing.  Before entering the park, a sign said:  “Rise above the storm.  There you will find the sunshine.”  She wondered why the day got off to a bad start.  Tensions rose between two minds.  Sunshine, where are you?  Emotions unraveling, not seeing eye to eye.  This moment shall pass, just laugh it away!  Things could be worst.  The car was parked at his favorite fishing spot.  She unfolded her camping chair in the sunshine and noticed a long log on the river.  Are those turtles resting on the log?  Indeed, a family of 6 all lined up.  She smiled when big papa turtle slid into the water and 2 others followed behind it.  Mama turtle and 2 babies laid sunbathing quietly as hours passed.   The turtles had erased the woman’s sadness, thanking God for the soothing goodness of gazing at them.  Thankfully she prayed, “wish I had the patience of these turtles.”  No fish was caught, but by the time the couple arrived home, saying to each other, “I’m sorry” made the rest of the day a winner.

A Bing Image of a Solid Rustic Door

I love doors that project hidden meanings.  Like this rustic door, I have a special friend who has been under family turmoil for a while and I miss hearing from her.  When the last time she spoke, saying “more in a while” I knew she needed space knowing that God uses detachment for a greater good not yet ready to be revealed.

Have you experienced this yourself?

When one door closes, another opens.”

–Alexander Graham Bell
