You may feel ordinary, no more special than a solitary droplet of rain in a storm. But I'm here to tell you that you're extraordinary in God's eyes. As women, we can be so hard on ourselves. We look in the mirror and see our blemishes. You and I look at our lives and see our bent and broken moments. Yet through Christ God looks at us and sees us as his unblemished daughters. He looks at our lives and sees how bent and broken moments can form perfect prisms, allowing us-like colorless light-to be bent and broken, blooming in arcs of color like a rainbow. The birth of a rainbow begins with a trillion tiny tears. These droplets of rain are reflectors of light, providing perfect prisms. Colorless light enters one singular droplet, then exits bent and broken into seven splendid colors of the spectrum. Broken light becomes beautiful and a rainbow is born. We each have experienced a trillion tiny trials. But these broken moments can become beautiful moments. While rainy seasons in life can be filled with stormy trials, they can also bring vibrant growth. Rain can nourish life, just as trials can nourish faith. Life is a journey through so many seasons. This book shares bent and broken moments from my own journey that started over five decades ago. I was a quiet little girl who grew up in a quiet little town. Then I left Mattoon and traveled to the loud, large city of St. Louis for pharmacy school. I was bent and broken and my faith was stretched learning about so much more than medicines. After college I moved to Kansas City, said yes to a job I disliked and "I do" to a man I loved (and still do). Suddenly I found myself in the challenging storm of a turbulent marriage. From two different worlds, Dave and I collided like cold and warm fronts. Trials rained down. Some days I felt we were barely staying afloat. Over the years instead of focusing on the gloomy moments, I've asked God to show me the majestic. Those moments can fill us with joy and transform us, so that we clearly see the good through eyes of faith. Please join me on this exciting journey to discover Glimmers of Glory in the gloomy moments of everyday life, not just in the pages of this book, but in the story of your life. You too can experience rainbows after rainy trails!
