This evening we had our first thunderstorm of the summer. I know that it is technically not summer, but this evening we had one of those storms. 

This evening it reminded me of a snow storm. Not in what we saw, but the effect that it had on us. We were in awe of the weather happening around us. It was a little scary, but beautiful as well. Once the thunder passed, the rain kept coming down, and it seemed peaceful. 

We didn't lose power, but we did lose the Directv for a while. So, we watched it rain. I don't know, but it seems that in storms we (at least I) tend to reconnect with nature (God). I think that it is true with the storms of life as well. 

I want to live life in awe of God, not having to rely on storms to get my attention. Lord, help me see your wonders in everyday life.
