Last night it poured! The skies opened up, the came down, lightening crashed, and thundered rumbled like I haven't seen/heard in sometime.
Now as a child t-storms always the crap outta me. Made me fearful God was coming after me for something wicked I'd done. As an adult I still don't particularly care for storms, but I've learned an appreciation for them. Learned to respect the clearing effect thunderstorms have on the surface.
There's a powerful personal storm brewing my life lately. Seems to be going on since my birthday and those clouds outside are looking more and more omnious. When the big one hits, I hope I have the wherewithal to be an adult an respect the so-called cleanse coming my way and not be afraid I've been punished for misdeeds.
Life is filled with lessons and if we only take the time to examine ourselves carefully, let a little crash, boom, and rain drops fall, the sun is bound to meet us on the other side.
I'm trying to remeber this...
