Possibly, think about Jeremiah who was beaten and put in the stocks without a trial. Maybe, consider Macaiah who was brought in front of Kings Jehoshaphat and Ahab to prophecy the truth, but was slapped on the face when he did so. Or, reflect that Peter asked to be crucified upside down because he was not worthy to die like Christ died.
Rain and clouds and even cold winds are minor in the fabric of society and mankind.
Enjoy this Siberian iris from my front yard.
