If you haven’t noticed by now, joking is one of my most utilized coping mechanisms. The fact that the rain was this persistent is a sign of how strong God is. I’m in a whirlwind of stress and hopelessness right now. && even though, I’ve reached a point where my perspective is not grounded in positivity, I have faith in God that he is made strong while I am at weakest. Although I joked all day, it put the tears on hold and kept me focused on the tasks at hand and for that I am grateful.
