The Calm Before the Storm

 Now I know what that expression means literally.

It is so calm right now, so beautiful and peaceful. I am looking out our window at the lovely trees and the sunlight through the leaves.

This is the ultimate lesson is trusting…

I have to remember, “Keep the faith and the faith will keep you.”

Instead of running the tape in my head of worry, I have to breathe deep and keep reminding myself that all is OK. All is OK!

These are the times when we’re tested. These are the times when we have to draw on all the reservoirs of courage and faith.

Fear = Forgetting Everything’s All Right
