When the curtain raises by arvyart

There was a terrible thunderstorm on the Washington Peak, GBNP, NV. Wet snow blown by a strong wind created a thick curtain and visibility was worse than poor. Moreover, the goggles were covered by a snow layer immediately. No use. No shelter to hide-out. The wild elements entered into a fury. Those moments are pressing hard. The same thing happens in our everyday lives and we have extremely hard days. However, our lives would lose a lot without them. I was lucky the storm was short enough and quitted as unexpectedly as started. And then the curtain raised. What a magic, what vistas and what a joy of life filled my soul. Every hard moment we undergo tempers our soul, our character, our mind… and softens our sensibility. Every hard moment we experience is better to accept as our ally rather than enemy. In addition, it is always more cheerful and better results are achieved when dealing with an ally. The Lord never allows such a weight upon somebody’s shoulders that crashes a person. The life is great to live. :)

    Great capture! I love the storm clouds! Lynn

  • Perhaps it would look cloud-like from a distance. But when I was in the eye of that fury they looked like an opaque wall. Thanks for your kind support, Lynn. :)

    How simple breathtaking!! One can’t help but to know, and see our great creator when looking upon such beauty as this!!! It is as you say….The Lord never allows such a weight upon somebody’s shoulders that crashes a person. The life is great to live.
    We have a lot to learn here about being proper caretakers of the garden, a lot of hard lessons to learn…but it will never be too much for us to bare, and in the end He will bring us all to where we need to be! By our expereance here then we will know then the RIGHT way to go, forever!

  • Wow. What a brilliant comment, Carolyn. Thank you so much and God bless you. :)

    Oh this looks cold and not a good place to be at that time but what a great photo!

  • Well, there’s no bad weather – it may be bad company and inappropriate clothing only as this saying was popular among our circle of mountaineers. I hike alone for a long time now so the first part of that saying doesn’t apply to me. I had excellent clothing and boots. It’s more spiritual trial. Thanks so very much for your kind comment, Jeanne. :)
