Thoughts While Creating
Just when we think we have everything under control, nature steps in. Changes can happen in the blink of an eye and the calm and serene quickly become the unsettled storm. Blues skies turn rich colors as the clouds part and the full force of the wind blows the serene apart.
Compare it to your life, often things move along quietly and in a straight line. No bumps nor holes in the road. In retrospect we come to realize that these times were taken for granted as change is the only thing that is certain. In most of our lives looking forward and preparation for change is not dwelled upon as the focus is the serene not the storm.
In our scene today we wonder if the keeper of the lighthouse has prepared everything for the coming storm. Is the light ready? Are the boats moored? Have the structures been battened down? It will just be a matter of time now as the event unfolds. Let us use this as a guide to follow as we prepare our lives for storms that are coming.
