Big storm here in So. Cal. Huge winds, rains, and the fence/wall on my property just went down.
I see trees down also. So what happens when stuff gets broken? Or destroyed? I'm listening to the winds howling outside, the rains hammering down-- At my feet a dog lies snoozing away, happy and calm and without a care in the world. If the house came down he'd be okay with sleeping under a tarp in the storm as long as he'd be with me. If the dog can be without a care in the world while a screaming storm assails us breaking up the property, I can be at peace, too. So it is with a tranquil heart I rail back at the storm and order it, as Jesus commanded His tempest, "Peace! Be Still!"
