Dancing Through The Storm
This past weekend,the Eastern Coast received about 12 to 15 inches of snow. Some areas had 4 inches per hour to fall. My sister made me walk in the snow, so she can take pictures. As we were walking in ankle deep snow and where the visibility was fair. I started to wonder about Harriet Tubman.
Did she traveled through snow? and if so, can you imagine the temperature. What kind of clothes were the slaves worn and what type of materials make up their shoes.
I cannot image walking in that weather for 300 miles or more to Canada.
Then I realize how spoil we are. We had layers of clothes on and had gloves. Then I thought about how some of us fail to go forward in life because we cannot weather our own personal storms. What made these slaves or any other group of people who had been persecuted for their skin color, religion or their belief.
Yet, they continue to fight, not by fist or guns, by knowledge,wit and faith.
Have we lost the process of problem solving, have we lost the knowledge and wit. Perhaps we have lost all hope and faith.And when these two qualities leave us, we have nothing at all.
We can dance through any storm, when you have faith. No problem is too big for God to handle. Let Go and Let God.
