You Matter…

All that you are…matters – from the seemingly least, to the most apparent & obvious.

You are powerful & significant, capable of influencing not only your world…but those with whom you interact.

You matter – your thoughts, your words, your body…your laughter, your pain – your beliefs.

You matter…

Do you matter to you?

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your visit. You’re always welcome to leave your thoughts & insights. Wishing you balance & well-being. ~Storm


The PROCESS of patience is often slow & meticulous. James 1:4 states it like this – “Allow patience to have her perfect work, so that there is no lack of any good thing.”

Divine structuring is taking place through patience, we are wise to let it happen!

Patience is the virtue that SEEMINGLY holds us back, although this is not the case…she’s merely taking care of Divine business – WORKING stuff WITHIN us & WORKING stuff OUT of us.

Believe it or not, patience pushes us forward – equipping us with the “know how” – holding our highest good!

Patience WORKS within each participant what time alone does not grant. Time gives to us the seasons & increments of space needed for a particular thing, or situation to take its timely turn. Patience equips us within that time frame (with the proper gear) so that we are effective in our assignment. She is a guardian of sorts…making sure that we are clothed sufficiently as we live, move & have our being.

How do you handle patience – rather, how do you allow patience to work in you?

More Than Our Experiences

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 chosen to practice – or, the ones that hold us captive…healthy or unhealthy.

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” ~C.G. Jung

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ~Oprah Winfrey

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 feelings of being unloved. This arduous act of self-examination…is self-love. It affirms – we are more than our experiences.

Divine love, the unconditional principal that validates self-awareness & self-acceptance is primary as we seek to define who we are.

Are you defining yourself through your experiences?

Your insights are always welcome. Thank you for your visit. Live wise & live well. ~Storm


Rest is healthy sense – mind, body, spirit.

Pause all activity. Breathe in slowly, naturally & deeply. Exhale in the same manner. Rest.

Listen to the sound of your breath. Explore the comfort in rest.

Welcome your cleansing breath – your healing breath. Engage its impact…do it again & again…& again.


Thank you for allowing Life Through The Storm to be a healthy part of your day.

Live wise, live well & rest. ~Storm

I was among them
I was in their midst

yet, I was alone

At that moment
I realized…alone
What an awesome
reality – alone.

Quite liberating
A bit scary, but liberating

Alone means that I am
solely present
Alone means that I am
significant & alive

Alone is totally
separate from loneliness
loneliness places me
in isolation.

Alone gives me the gift
of my own voice,
the strength to be free &
the courage
to stand.

Alone is not without
regard for interdependence
Alone is the teacher that
empowers the learner.

Wishing you balance & well-being. ~Storm


Word play us…

Words build us or destroy us
Words tell us lies
Words fill our mouths with dirt
Words separate us.

Words make us feel alive
Words console our hearts
Words stir fond memories.

We permit words to define us,
to deceive us, or
to strengthen us.

Words are the songs of angels
Words are peace makers – tidings
of hope, renewal & possibility.

Words are life & death
Words are powerful.

Words are words -
yet, they create images,
thoughts, beliefs &

Words reveal
much about the speakers
Words are a matter
of choice.

Your words…have you
considered them?

You’re always welcome to contribute your thoughts & insights. Thank you for allowing Life Through The Storm to be a healthy part of your day.
