The 11/01/13 Joy Jar

It is definitely heading toward winter. Daylight Savings Time is ending and a winter storm is headed for Seattle this weekend. Storms build character and help one appreciate the calm. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is weathering the storms.

After a storm comes a calm.
Matthew Henry

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Robert H. Schuller
