Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame;
~ Psalm 25.3
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest I learned it is pointless to wait for the weather when planning activities. That philosophy has worked out well in adulthood as well. I would have missed many hikes and bike rides and camping trips over the weeks if I let the rain deter me.
The thing about riding in the rain is that it eventually stops. And when it stops, the clouds part. And often when clouds part, when the air is washed clean, and the sun sets, the scene is spectacular.
Some things are worth waiting for, like this sunset in western Montana.
SHARE: Waiting can be hard. As a child, if you must wait for 5 minutes, it is a much larger fraction of your life than when you are an adult waiting for 5 minutes. Talk to someone you love about waiting. What is easy about waiting? What is challenging about waiting? What are some things you must wait for? What makes it easier to wait?
