Lightening Storms....

I don't know how many of you witnessed the amazing lightening storm last night (which kept me awake until after mid-night), but it was breathtaking. I am an add person in that I love to watch the weather. I love watching lightening, storm clouds, colors in the sky.... Yes.. tornadoes are very bad, but what mighty power! Tornadoes make me think of what the finger of God must be like. Storms remind me of God's awesome power. I think in our culture where everything is comfortable, easy and 'normal' we forget just how powerful our God truly is. He can destroy, create, quiet waters, move mountains...
Life can feel like a storm too. When something hits you (like lightening) it shocks and hurts. Rain can be like tears falling.... then when the storm passes, a rainbow lights up the sky. God promises to be with us. He is here, now. To think that the only God of the universe wants to have a relationship with me/us... is mind blowing.

I admit now that I am back from camp, I have hardly left my house, except for the fast trip to Wal-Mart to get food. haha I must be getting older because today is the first day I have real energy since leaving the mountains on Saturday. But... I do miss all the wonderful people I spent a week with already. I can't wait until next year. Friendship. True friendship is a gift. I have a friend that I had not seen in since the early '90s and we just picked up like it was yesterday.
Everyone... stay cool....
