storm clouds 1







It starts with a low rumble
As the sun shines brightly
Off in the distance clouds gather
First white, and then gray turning black
Ominous and foreboding
Rain pours down from the heavens
Darkness sets in
Wind blows and hail begins
Trees bent cowering in the storm
The clouds begin to scatter
First black, then gray then white
Foreboding replaced with stillness
Light shows the way
Rain turns to  mist as the rumble fades
Trees stand tall no longer afraid
As the thunderstorm goes its way
unknown source
unknown source

  1. And than we have the Rainbow, thanks Patty, a good word picture of Storms and yes they are part of life but as I have shared before from Scripture (see below) we never go through them alone.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Christian Love from us both – Anne


    1. It sure does, and although I do not like storms I am too reminded of Gods power and goodness. I get the same feeling at the beach and the roar of the waves.


      1. Blessings to you too, Patty. I have not seen you in my reader … so glad I came on by to see you. Really having issues … (((HUGS))) Amy


  2. Last week we went through our first real thunderstorm (and high winds) since moving to the lake. We live in a wooded area, (actually an old walnut grove) so we had limbs falling, but we were also being bombed with walnuts. Lot’s of tree debris but as far as I know no major damage to homes and no injuries. When it was all over people were out going through the community checking on their neighbors, making sure everyone was okay. That’s one good thing that can come in the aftermath of a storm — people do tend to reach out to others.


    1. That is so true. It always takes something bad to happen to bring out the good in people. And people wonder why bad things need to happen…ummm…maybe part of Gods plan as to why He allows it.
