Stormy Seas



~~~

Anyone can steer when the seas are calm

And I pray your days filled with breezes just

But when the gales begin to fill your sails

Is when we find what is best in us

~~~

When whitecaps wrinkle the glassine surface

And strong winds blow against our lives

We must find the strength of right purpose

And work to determine what survives

~~~

Tossed and turned through a sleepless night

Plagued by the storms without warning

We must hold the helm ever so tight

If we hope to see the next morning

~~~

Set your eyes upon the horizon far

And lash yourself to the sturdy rail

Find the power of who you surely are

For you were always meant to sail

~~~

    This hit my heart. Iā€™m listening to storms outside and navigating my own personal storm. Iā€™m positively positioning myself. šŸ™šŸ»šŸ’ŖšŸ»šŸ„°šŸ’›šŸ¤—

    This is a beautiful reminder, my friend! We might not be able to control the storms, but we are the captain of our own ships! Bravo!!

    A metaphor for life. It’s easy to be upbeat when everything is going well, but do we have the same tenacity when facing adversity?

  4. I am lashed to a sturdy rail, wishing the Boy Scouts taught me more about sturdy knots!
