It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 7, Page 29, Book 14


Life is Like Weather Patterns. People can be calm, sunny, full of warmth and cheer. Then we can be stormy, cloudy, cold and hurtful.

Life is like the weather, it changes. People change too.  Like the seasons we all have cold and hot days, cloudy and sunny days.  

 Life is unpredictable, just like the weather.  Our stability rests on something more enduring than the current weather.  Whether or not today is a great day shouldn't depend on the weather.  

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism


Extreme weather teaches us to appreciate the days of warm sunshine.

The weather teaches us that we have no control over life. Since we can't control what happens to us, we ought not let what happens control us.  We have choices, and we are responsible for the choices we make. 

Each of us makes his own weather, determines the color of the skies in the emotional universe which he inhabits.

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

Never judge a day by the weather

Life is a gift we receive, for our joyful experience.  It is very much like the weather.   During these summer days we are enjoying whatever sunshine comes our way. May it always be a reminder of God's incredible generosity towards each of us.

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

 Anthony J. D’Angelo

This was a good one to read today Ma. I needed the reminder that the weather shouldn't depend on whether or not this is a great day especially since we are dealing with hot muggy weather without air conditioning. I'll have to remember that this pattern will change one day and try to enjoy the day for what it is worth :)

Again it is easy to agree with Betty. This also fits in our present situation. Yesterday Tornadoes around here and today bright and sunny.
I Like that about the weather pays no attentions to criticism.

And also have found some folks who are actually predictable, they are like weather in the tropics, steady. Then others like most weather UNpredictable.

If we are missing from the net, we are in another bad spot. Today seems to be better than yesterday.
Love the entry.

Oh my and the weather has been terrible everywhere lately!

Great Post


I like the idea that life is like weather patterns and we should bring our own sunshine.
