Subject Matter: Storm

Back home, when there was a storm, my ear would be literally glued on the radio’s speaker as I listened to the news. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out that it was not a good day. At my house, you could tell that it was indeed another not-so-dry-and-not-so-awesome-day when you see those buckets in every room almost half filed with rain water dripping from my dilapidated ceiling caused by the leakage on my rusted roof. We had a storm signal number 3 and for a teacher like me… it was a good sign.

It means no classes… no students to deal with… another lesson plan spared!

Storm is Mother Nature’s lesson plan. It teaches us lessons of survival. It gives us a chance to see blessings in a different light. And it helps us to hone some skills to get through with tough times.

Dry spell likewise, is Mother Nature’s teaching tools. It equips us with strength to face hardship. It allows us to use our God-given abilities to live life to the fullest. And more importantly, it gives us an opportunity to grow strongly rooted on the ground to weather any storm.
