The best thing one can do when it’s raining is let it rain. (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

It’s a simple, obvious statement. Unless you’re planning to play in the rain, you’ll probably stay indoors or use an umbrella. The one thing you can’t do is make it stop raining. You can’t always stop what’s happening in life, either. So, let it happen and take care to restore your balance when it’s all over so you’re prepared for the next unexpected event.

So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. (1 Peter 1:13)
