Today was a fine example of the storms that come into our lives. They come with such power, or they can come with a whimper. But they come just the same. They interrupt what we may expect at the time. They march to their own tune, but they come just the same. They shake up things, they provide nourishment, and they are a force to be reckoned with.
One can ride the storm and be strengthened by it, or one can be knocked around and weakened by it. It’s all up to you which way it goes. Storms carry their own awesome beauty and awesome power. You can see them coming. Feel it in the Earth. Smell it on the Wind. You can always sense a storm coming, and sometimes it has nothing to do with nature, and everything to do with you.
When I lived in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin I used to sit on the car port, and watch the storms come in. I could sit under the port and feel the power of them. At the time we lived on the edge of town, so we could see the storms coming in from the west over the prairie and farms. It was awesome to watch. From Sun Prairie we went to Virginia. I used to say we traded tornadoes for hurricanes.
Nature is Awesome and Beautiful in her power regardless of whether it’s a sunset or rise, a beautiful day, a blizzard, or a rainy day with thunder. She’s beautiful. Accepting her and enjoying what she has to offer with out complaint can change the way you look at life. You may even begin to see similarities in places you least expect.
