A Worthy Journey…

Life is no respecter of persons – there are no perfect lives. At best, we are left in charge of learning and growing through our experiences. This alone makes it a worthy journey!

We’re all met with the expected, as well as the unexpected – joys, disappointments, failures and successes. A perfect dosage to create balance!

While such is the case, the constant and inevitable changes that swiftly cross our paths – bring tidings worthy of our attention…our pursuit!

Have you deemed your journey worthy?

Thank you for taking the time to visit Life Through The Storm. Wishing you balance and wellbeing. ~Stormie Steele

Overcoming Abuse, Wounds & Other Stuff…

Originally posted on StormieSteele:

I thank God that we’re not bound to live by our experiences alone. Our experiences assist us in learning more about ourselves, and the world around us. Furthermore – our experiences & daily encounters shed light on the beliefs & thoughts that we’ve collected, inherited, chosen to practice – or, the ones that hold us captive…healthy or unhealthy.

We’re each left with the responsibility of searching deep within ourselves – courageously facing & clearing the impact (debris) from experiences that leave us with a poor/false self-image, or – with any feelings of being unloved. In other words – overcoming the harsh impact of experiences that misinterpret our worth is in our charge. This is especially true for those who have survived any form of abuse.

The Unexpected Blessing…

Originally posted on StormieSteele:

Life has a way beckoning our attention. It is often through the unexpected that we gain the resurrection of strength, courage & a profound ability to become more than we could have possibly imagined.

Through the challenge – life & purpose becomes evident. There’s always more than meets the eye taking its timely place.

Are you permitting the unexpected to bless you?

You’re always welcome to share your insights & wisdom. Speak life, think well…believe. ~Storm

Take Some Time…

Take some time – breathe. All things can not be accomplished in one day.

Seize some time to relax – breathe. Can you feel your breath…can you hear it?

Slow down – breathe. Command your thoughts to stop! When you slip back into thinking…breathe more intently. Listen to your breath, escape into the calm…the peace.

Breathe (inhale), breathe (exhale) – slow, relaxed and calmly – breathe.

Take some time – breathe. ~Storm

Thank you for visiting Life Through The Storm

Live wise, live well and breathe deeply.

SistaStrings ~”Strange Fruit”, A Musical Collaboration

violin and cello

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGubqmftGxQ

SistaStrings instrumental piece of “Strange Fruit” , continues in the heart-tugging delivery of a song that sheds light on the senseless brutality of humanity on humanity.

“Strange Fruit”
Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swingin’ in the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin’ from the poplar trees

Pastoral scene of the gallant South
The bulgin’ eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burnin’ flesh

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

While I can bring much emphasis to the song itself – I would rather focus on SistaStrings. SistaStrings ~Monique & Chauntee Ross~ present a special blend of refined elegance to practically anything they collaborate on. You can feel their music. I’d like to think that their contemporaries – Karen Briggs and Yo Yo Ma would be proud.

Bred in classical training, the sisters are rising stars! Having graced Carnegie Hall, The Milwaukee Symphony, Fred Hammond, Virtue, Michael Buble, and more – SistaStrings are a unique addition to the music scene.

I envision SistaStrings starring on stage with Debra Cox, Andrea Bocelii, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Barbara Streisand, Chris Botti , David Foster, Burt Bacharach…need I say more!

SistaStrings…Oh yeah!!!
