Grey clouds move against a silhouette of homes, where we live with the anticipation of a looming storm, where we wonder if we will need to get flashlights ready or prepare the crawlspace under the stairs.
There’s a sense of panic that even our dog is feeling. It’s in the air.
Yet as this storm bellows to us like an uninvited guest, I’m reminded: Take courage. It is I. Don’t be afraid.
And as the tempests of life move in, as the pain that knocks the wind out of lungs and shakes our shoulders out of socket, I’m reminded.
Take courage. It is I. Don’t be afraid.
