Day 26: Thankful Today for The Calm Before the Storm

As I wait for the series of storms that are predicted to hit us as a result of a hurricane off the coast I feel an odd calm in the air. The clouds are dark and moving but nothing is happening. They wait. And in their wait there is time. Time for me to get things done before the possible power outages. To run any last minute errands before the possible flooding of the roads.

It is a blessing when we have that time when faced with the other kinds of storms in our lives. That time to muster all our strength. Time to gain the needed wisdom. Time to build our faith through prayer and counsel. So that we can face the storm with grace, and poise and remain standing through the storm and once its passed. I am thankful for the calm before the storm.
