when storms come

When I know a storm is coming – like the one we are hearing about today – I begin to think of the things on my calendar, the things on my to do list. Often in the middle of my cogitations I sometimes wish the storm would change – that it would come earlier or later or just go away. Sometimes I get my wish. Sometimes the storm comes in a way no one predicted. Today I have reminded myself that I cannot control the storm. Neither can I control the reactions of other people to the storm. I can only do what I can do and let God do what He will do.
