I'll bet you can fill in the blanks with your own "dark cloud" and "blue sky" moments. But I think it's all in how you handle them. If you have Jesus, then you know what I mean. The Lord places "dark clouds" in our lives for a reason. We may not fully understand the "why" of it all, but we can certainly rely on Him to bring us through them to our next "blue sky!"
