"God knows how to make you smile, you just have to be on the lookout."

The clouds have been open now for a few days, giving away free water to us, Toronto-ians.
also known as rain.
it's been going on for a while now, and i must say, i'm not in love with it anymore. rain is beautiful, but when you wake up each morning to the sound of water, it becomes quite frustrating. but i guess that's what you get when you complain to God that it's too hot or the earth needs more water.

anyways, it's now thursday and i am hoping to join joanna's bible study later tonight...they always seem to be full of surprises (interesting ones, that is).

yesterday was bittersweet.
i was woken up by my mother attempting to unclog the sink in the bathroom. i then went downstairs to find my sister. she told me news about the family back home in switzerland. news that shook me. like a captain on a ship, awaken by sudden crashing waves.
...my boat has been shaken, the waves are starting to hit...and it's time for me to stand strong.
that kind of goes for anyone. when you are living easy and all of a sudden the quiet sky starts to shake up and the storms begin, stand strong.

and when you fall down, it's okay...because there are people around you who will pick you back up. and carry you along the path of what we call "Life".

but then on the other hand of drama, there lied hope. i hung out with a few wonderful people (joanna, amanda, spencer, jaxson, and a few others) and we witnessed a few small miracles, which made the day brighter. there's something about simplicity...

just staring out into the sky reminds you there is something or someone greater out there. we were by the lake, and there was such a beautiful view...


God knows how to make you smile. you just have to be on the lookout.

well, i better get ready for tonight's bible study...so i will write later.
remember, your day can only become brighter if you allow the sunshine to come out...

- melody. :)
ps. soon to come! first redemption story! ahhhh. i'm excited, are you?
