STORM OBSERVATION

We have endured so many storms here lately in East Texas.

As I type this, Mark Skirto, our local station’s chief meteorologist is wound up.  Considering the craziness of the storms and sighting of a twister they hope is not on the ground, his anxiousness is somewhat justifiable.

A town not too far from us had a tornado travel through and created havoc of all kinds.  They are having to restart and rebuild a huge area of their lives.  Part of the elementary school even had to cancel school for the rest of this semester.

Storms can cause so much damage.  Tornadoes create the look that a huge monster came through stomping, chomping and wadding up buildings like we would a piece of paper.

Storms are so scary for us, because we truly have no control.

Thinking about this, I thought about LIFE.  We do have some control over things we do.  I mean, we have to make certain decisions and controlling our bladder is something we really want to keep in check….

BUT this big picture of life that we are in…

we are not in control.

People take this in what I’ve observed as two different ways–

1. Some understand this and lean not on their own understanding, but believe it will all be well.  These people look at things positively, knowing that it will work out.  I’m not saying bad things don’t happen to these people, but no matter what happens to them, the storms of life don’t wreck them.  These people pick up the pieces and move on.  They learn from their experiences–good or bad.  It truly is all about how you look at it.  ((A lot of these people admit to being believers and truly do believe.))

2.  Others understand this, but try and buck it.  They try to hold on to control and always complain that nothing goes exactly how they thought it was supposed to.  The storms of life to them are devastating.  They worry, they fear and are constantly stressed about life.  The storms stop them from moving forward.  They tend to always go backward or stay stagnant in whatever storm they have chosen to dwell in.  It truly is all about how you look at it.  ((A lot of these people admit to being believers, but don’t truly believe.))

Just my storm observation.

Blessings Today

#1 This is the video I created today. This woman is awesome and I’m glad she allows me to help in her ministry! What a blessing!

#2 I met a new friend today. His name is Chris and he’s one of those people you meet and you instantly like. I probably talked his head off and he might think I’m a total art freak…or other variety, but I sure did appreciate God allowing me to meet him today. He was taking my pic for an upcoming article on a project I do. He’s a total artsy…one of MY PEOPLE…he’s in the ART TRIBE. What a blessing!

#3 My child played volleyball tonight and their team won. I’m so proud of that gal. ANOTHER BLESSING!

# There are more to list, but I won’t go on…God knows He showers me and I want to give all of the praises to HIM!

Amen 🙂

Moments

Photographer: Noah Johnson

What an amazing moment this picture has captured!!! The gift of beauty is something The Lord gives us all the time. We get caught up in our lives, our busy schedules and every day worries AND MISS IT! Why! We are so dumb. I pray for a daily knock upside the head… An eye-opener! Come on, girl, check this out!
I love moments like these where we can just breathe in and out and KNOW GOD. We should do this with every breath.
Lord, please keep me alert to YOU. Please remind me to open my eyes and don’t look at my circumstances, but to YOU. Thank You Lord for this moment and the sweet little photographer that captured it!
