Then comes the morning! Dark and ominous clouds were our companions yesterday as the weather began to deteriorate as Tropical Storm Hanna churned off the coast of North and South Carolina making her way toward the coastline where she would make landfall. Winds began to pick up and rain began to fall as we started to feel the effects of the storm. As the day progressed, the skies became darker and darker. Just how bad was this thing going to be?
Clouds began to bank up in the skies, an ominous warning of things to come. Rains came next, at first as sprinkles, then as downpours. Winds were moderate up until landfall occurred, then they raged in the dark, early morning hours. Darkness! Heavy rains! Raging winds! Occasional lightning! These were our companions through the night.
Then came the morning! Winds still blew . . . rains still fell . . . dark clouds still filled the sky . . . YET . . . there was a comfort! It was morning! Fears of the unknown and unseen that had plagued during the night suddenly disintegrated. Light could be seen!
Such is the scene when the storms of life come to threaten us with their ominous downpours and raging winds. When the unknown and unseen forces of the enemy are amassed against us we can have the hope of the coming morning and the brightness of a new day!
