It’s 2:36 am and I’m wide awake…

There is a Tornado Watch right now and…..  Unfortunately, the Tornado Watch is through 9 am and I doubt I can stay awake that long.  I am a storm chaser in my heart…. I love to watch the cloud formations as storms approach from the west.  The power in the wind and the beauty of the rolling clouds is amazing to me.

As a child, I remember being told when it thunders, that is God talking.  You might think this would scare a child…but I was facinated.  In fact , the Bible refers to thunder as God’s voice…. All powerful!  So I wasn’t scared of the Thunder after I knew that God was talking, so to speak!  I certainly knew He was bigger than I.

My husband likes to tell the story of when we were driving to our  lake cottage and billowy storm clouds were looming  in our driving direction… we heard Tornado sirens…  cars were parked under the highway bridges (not ours of course, as we kept driving through).  I watched the clouds closely and was getting a little concerned.  I leaned way down in my seat and looked up so I could see the clouds above us.  My hubby said I was cowering….and perhaps I was!  We kept on trecking…and pretty soon drove through an area where a strong wind had just toppled some trees and roofing materials and debris was all over the highway.

This weather watcher was just a little to close for comfort.  That is how I feel about the cancer… it is a little close for comfort right now.    But God’s rolling thunder reminds me this little storm in my life will pass over and the sun will shine again.  He is in control and this storm will pass.

Excuse me as I go get my night time goggles on so I can watch the clouds…..  Just kidding, but if there was such a thing, it would be on my Christmas list!!   What kind of storm are you going through?  Blessings, Marilyn

  1. Hi Marilyn,

    It’s me … Fr. Rick. I love storms too. When the family headed for the basement, I headed to the backyard, with my mom chasing after me. I think that is a metaphor … we need to face the storms head on, and our Blessed Mother will always have our back.

    Love and Prayers
