COLORS OF STORMS


As I was watching the weather warnings run across the TV screen, I began to think about how we go through life's storms without any warnings. Each one of the storms we go through are painted a different color of severity, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red.


It could be that a Green storm is trouble getting ready for work or maybe just a trip to the grocery store and find that you have missed placed the car keys or your wallet.


A Yellow storm could be a bump up in traffic or maybe the car won't start and you are going to be late for a very important appointment.


An Orange storm could be having an accident where you or a family member gets hurt or maybe has a health emergency such as a heart attack or some other life threatening trauma.


The Red storm, life just stops, nothing else seems to matter when it hits. News of a love one who just died unexpectedly or was killed in an accident.
