How Do You See the Rainbow After the Storm?

My country is recently hit by its strongest storm in 20 years. Many died, too much lost or suffered. There's no stopping of storms occuring as we move on with our lives. We just need to be ready all the time when they hit us. I am reminded of a quote by Albert Einstein whose outlook on life was shaped by World War II and its own inherent evil. Einstein wrote: "Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." To see the rainbow after the storm, a most important thing to remember is to fall up instead of fall down. This involves changing my perception. While I cannot control what has happened, I can control my perception. That takes faith and hope in Him.
