Today's weather was absolutely "stunning" (my sister's word), phenomenal, gorgeous here where I live. It was a day you could do almost anything; go to church, walk, play in the park, fish, fly a kite, swing, read, relax, you name it, you could have done it.
I chose to ride. As I was horseback in the pasture feeling so blessed by the incredible weather here and by just the opportunity to have a horse and have a great place to ride him, my thoughts went out to the folks being caught in the middle of "Sandy". The weather forecast, the threats, the predictions regarding the hurricane headed for the east coast are all terribly frightening. It's likely that if your not in the wake of this storm, you will know someone who could or will be affected by it.
Mine and many other prayers are going up and out for those of you who will be touched one way or the other. Stay safe, stay warm and dry, and keep God close to your heart.
23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
Encourage one another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.
Blessings and love
