July 1 Inspiration

From the Desk of Dawn Parr, Children’s Ministry Director

‘Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass; it is learning to dance in the rain.’

This is a quote that was hanging in my mother’s house and is now hanging in my foyer. I love this because it was my mother’s mantra. During her battle with cancer, she always kept a positive attitude —and lived life to the fullest. When my sister or I would ask if she was okay or needed anything, she always responded, “I’m fine and life is great!”

John 16:33 provides full assurance that in our storms of life we need not be concerned for he has conquered the world! The next time you feel overwhelmed, start dancing in the rain. The storm will pass, and the sun will shine again!
