Spreading the love of Jesus...the Cowboy Way!

My wife and I were camping a couple of years ago near the Utah/Wyoming border.  The first night a storm came up, the winds blew and the rain came down.  Annie asked if the tent was going to be blown away.  I assured her that it would not blow away since we were in it, but did tell her that if might come down.

     The next morning, ahhh, the air was clear and crisp, the sun shining down, and there was a wonderful freshness.  We sat around the fire before breakfast, drinking coffee and listening to the quiet.  The sound the quiet makes is refreshing to the soul.  The storms may assail, howl and rage.  It may leave a wake of destruction.  But after the storm, consider the stillness.  George Matheson wrote, "This quietness is now a possession, a power, a presence--something to hear, to feel, to commune with."  The Holy Spirit brings quietness and peace after the storm. 

     We need to thank the Lord for the storm of yesterday.  Without that storm, that tempest, we would not be able to recgonize the peace and tranquility of today.

 

Isaiah 32:17 (HCSB), "The result of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quiet confidence forever."
