Storms are always in our midst. Some are Cat 5 and some never make it to 1. The main thing to remember is they WILL come. There will be no avoiding them. You may be able to get far away and lessen the damage to yourself or others. You may be able to board up all your windows and save your glass. Still if the roof is pealed off, the stuff inside will be ruined. A gust of wind can bring down a mighty oak like it was a sapling or it can blow through a house like it was a matchbox. I have seen it. Thank God, not experienced it. My storms and your storms may have similar winds, similar rain some similar damage. Still the effect on each subject is unique. What I have learned is that it is life that has the true value, it is family (whatever that may mean to you) that will help us overcome the damage that is done. No life will avoid every storm on the horizon. No life will be “storm free.” Yet, it is our choice before, during and after each storm that will help us to grow stronger and recognize the beauty in mankind.
May your storms be mild depressions and tropicals only!!
