Is bright and shining;
I therefore turn my clouds about,
And always wear them inside out
To show the lining.
Ellen Thorncroft Fowler
Can you see the inside of your cloud at this moment? What a philosophy to aspire to. It is our choice to look for the inside of our cloud. For myself, it needs to be a daily discipline. Here's a suggestion.
Philippians 4:8 (The Message)
8-9 Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
