summer storms

I live for summer storms. One of the best things when working in TN was the storms. They would roll in, happen for a small part of the afternoon and then move on. There was something blessed about those moments of rain on a hot day, and though it would get unbearably hotter, that cool breeze for a moment was heavenly.

That's how I felt tonight. I was out with some friends, watching the storm brew. Storms here have been a rare occurance in my year here, but tonight it really felt magical. I could see from where I was in the early evening, that it was raining in some parts of the city, but not others. As I headed to my bible study, the sky was ominous, the clouds looming, and I wanted nothing more than to just pull my car over and wait for the rain to wash over me.

I took some pictures on my way there, some when I got there. We started in on Luke, and then Daen went to check on the kiddo upstairs. Suddenly she was back down, telling us we needed to go outside. The lightning was dancing. The 5 of us stood outside, mesmerized by the show that was put before us. There was this God moment then. The ground felt holy, and I stood there in awe. This time of year, I'm gearing up for fireworks, another awe filled experience for me, but this was like God's fireworks. Lighting up the night sky, giving us a show to accompany the rain.

We were back in and reading Luke before we knew it, but it was in that moment that I realized that things aren't always the same, people won't always be the same, but we can always have amazing experiences that link us to each other in ways that are unimaginable.
