Sudden change can be exciting.....or overwhelming and catastrophic
We had temperatures of 80 degrees and more...and then a day later almost a foot of snow fell on our city.
The trees still had most of their leaves and the extra weight of the very wet snow was far too much for the limbs to bear. Many residents looked out upon broken limbs lying all around their yards; many trees were too broken to go on living.
The line of trucks and cars with trailers lined up at the recycling center went on for about a mile every day as the residents cleaned up and disposed of the branches that had fallen.
Life can be this way. Sudden changes to our circumstances can overwhelm us and break us. Be filled with faith so that you can go on in the face of adversity and become stronger through your struggles.
