Silent snow fall at night may make you wonder around you and start pondering about life and living !.

Many countries in the world have witnessed a very bad snow fall, which was heavy and silent on the start but it became less friendly when winds started to blow all around.

Almost everyone enjoyed watching the snow when it was gently falling especially when it initially fell with a lot of kindness and it was so polite without disturbing people’s lives. Snow when it falls with those characters can be felt romantic, inspiring, calming, and mind stimulating. It does make you try to see behind the scenes, and if you are one of those who asks “why”, you could as well see some hidden dimensions of your life and start wondering and pondering.

Here in the UK, it was generally nice and pleasant on the first two days of snow, but once the Beast of the East sneaked in, life became different for many people especially those in the North and the North-West. The rest of us remained with our initial joy and enthusiasm, then Emma decided to get on line, and that was enough to upset almost everyone in this country, and I am sure in the world around us in Western Europe at least.

Struggling to cope with life in those circumstances does make you ask many questions. Why nice things never last for long if not forever, and why others(demons) just love to disturb peace and interrupt dreaming?!. Why don’e we human beings just have fun and beautiful life with no hiccups, no upsets, no sufferings, and no illnesses?. Questions we must ask and shall never feel shy or hesitating to ask the Lord about as He is the Creator, and He is in charge at least at the far end of events.
I did ask Him such questions hundreds of times, but He never cared to answer any of my questions!. He, instead, allowed me to use my mind and seriously think about happenings in our life as Human beings. Can it be(life) always peaceful, happy, warm, rich, generous, healthy, and relaxing?!. Is that the kind of living we all aspire to have and dream of?!.
I do believe that we were created to appreciate the good only when we taste the bad. We can only appreciate health when we feel ill. We can only appreciate the taste of delicious food when we feel hungry. We only enjoy and cherish peace when we experience wars. We can only appreciate the good when we try the bad. I think life that way is worth living, but we need always to be optimistic, realistic, motivated, and dreamy. We need always to remember that tomorrow will be better than today, but if tomorrow is not better, then after tomorrow will be!!. We need always to see a glimpse of light at the end of every dark tunnel to enjoy life and stay relaxed.
Sun will shine, and Spring will yours and it'll be mine!!.
Sun will shine, and Spring will yours and it’ll be mine!!.

Always remember that Spring will follow, and these days of snow are nothing but the “dying” last days of Winter. It is hard for Winter to go with no nice farewell from us, but Spring will enter our houses without invitation… and with no need for Winter to give permission!.

    Hi Mohamed,
    Thank you for writing (Why me?), editorial number 8 .
    I really enjoyed reading it. I have never really looked at the world from that perspective before and it has brought up lots of interesting questions in my mind. One of them being ‘what should our response be to suffering?’

    Like you say, life for any one of us is full of struggles battles, difficulties and illnesses. There is not one individual that I know who does not have their own story of pain, struggle, heartache or disappointments.

    If we look back at our own journey we can probably see how such experiences have shaped and moulded our character and changed the direction of our lives, hopefully for the better in the end. That is if we can accept that life is a journey of hills and valleys, and that not one of us is immune to pain and suffering.

    The question for some is ‘where is God in those painful moments?’. In our darkest moments in life we can feel like heaven is silent…. but it is in those moments that God is walking beside us, in the tears, the questions, the frustrations. We can look back on our lives and it can seem like such a mess …..but if we look closely enough we can always find God in the smaller details of the experience.

    It reminds me of a song written by a beautiful singer called Laura story.. Called blessings. She wrote this at a time in her life when her husband had just been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and was searching for the same answer.


    So I have an illness ……. No one has a cure… No one knows why it happens…and I can live my life with fears, worries, if, buts and maybes… But no one knows what my journey is going to be, except God. So I have a choice to make … It can make me a bitter or better person!

    I feel blessed that It hasn’t affected me too badly but the diagnosis has been a journey of significant loss in many ways.
    Would my journey in life have been different if I hadn’t been diagnosed? ‘Yes….but I wouldn’t be where I am today and I would never exchange that.

    I can wrestle with the what if’s and but’s of those losses but I have to ask do I want those experiences to make me bitter or a better person?. We all have regrets in this life but we have to learn to forgive ourselves and move on.

    But how do we help those that can’t see through the despair, can’t see the amazing opportunities and life that they still have before them in those moments of greatest disappointment and sorrow. Even if the time we have left is short and one of pain we still have a choice… We can still,in those moments, be the best person we can be.
