This is about an adventure. Its hard to think of a health problem, like having Lupus, as an adventure, since an adventure could be confused with sounding like such a positive thing. But, this is an adventure, and where an adventure takes you depends partly on the decisions and friends you make along the way.
I have a great Guide and some amazing companions in my adventure: my Savior the Lord Jesus Christ, my husband and the love of my life, my two children, their spouses, my grandchildren, extended family, outstanding physicians, nurse practitioners, awesome and understanding bosses, supportive co-workers and some very precious friends! I am blessed with a great company of encouragers going along on this adventure with me.
Some things, like rain that falls during your travel, are just part of the adventure. The rain will surely get you soaked, but whether that is a good thing, or a bad thing, depends on sometimes on how you look at it when the rain is falling. Sometimes, it also depends on whether your remembered the umbrella!
My mother is no longer around to be part of this adventure with me. But, she is the one who taught me to look out the window at the San Francisco rain and say with glee, “put on your rain coat, get your rain boots, grab the umbrella! Let’s go for a walk in the rain!” So on many rainy afternoons, we would do just that. We would don our rain gear, set out walking arm in arm, singing and laughing as we strolled, making the most of a glorious rainy day!
Join the journey, and see where it goes… come along with me and start singing in the rain!
“The joy of the Lord is my strength.” Neh. 8:10
