Life is full of different colours, and they all make a rainbow of your life

Life is full of different colours, and they all make a rainbow of your life.

I have had my fair share of bright sunny days, that are filled with love, laughter, joy and everything my heart desires and I have also had days that seemed dark and gloomy, where things appeared to be so bad, that somehow I never imagined things getting better for me.

During my dark days it was so hard to think about the bright days I had previously experienced, instead I chose to focus on all the negative aspects that were taking place.

Over the years I have learnt to accept that life is full of various colours, and with each colour that arises one must accept and endure that season. Some days you have dark colours where everything seems dark and gloomy and they are other days that seem brighter and more colourful

Just like a rainbow has various colours in order to be a rainbow, so does your life need the various experiences that you may experience.
A rainbow would not be a rainbow if some colours were missing. Each colour equally matters and forms the beautiful rainbow that we enjoy looking at.

It’s not a beautiful rainbow all the time, but if you can hold on to the colours, something great will arise. Every struggle and every pain make up your rainbow, these experiences are necessary in order for you to be the person you were created to be. You need every single part of your journey, to give you the life you love.

To everyone going through a difficult, challenging time be encouraged, knowing that after the rain has a poured a beautiful rainbow rises and the sun follows. By faith things can only get better.

I was so saddened by the devastating news , that is taking place in Nepal.
On Saturday 25th April a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake devastated the country of Nepal. It struck between the country’s two largest cities: Pokhara and Kathmandu. It’s the nation’s worst earthquake in 80 years and has already claimed the lives of more than 4,000 people. Thousands more are injured and displaced.

There is equal concern for rural areas, as much of the country has had heavy rainfall over the last few days, it greatly increases the risk of land slides. An avalanche has already occurred at Everest, taking many lives and injuring many more.

The earthquake has wreaked incomprehensible damage, yet it’s impact has yet to unravel. Nepal is mountain nation, and with the recent earthquake it is very likely to trigger devastating landslides, particularly when the monsoon season hits in June. The implications from the lack of food, water, sanitation, shelter, education and a myriad of other basic requirements and infrastructures could be equally damaging, if not more so.
No one could stop the earthquake, but the humanitarian response to disaster and how we react to suffering, as people, is our responsibility and entirely within our grasp.

I had the opportunity of living in Nepal for three months on a volunteer placement, not only did I gain new friends, I gained a whole family and I’m deeply attached to Nepal and the people of Nepal. Their pain is my pain.

It’s great that we are all praying for Nepal but what the people of Nepal really need right now is our donation.

Nepal needs our help. Nepal needs your help. Though it isn’t our home that’s in shambles, we can respond like it is.
