A deadly, devastating storm hit Alabama and Georgia last night. Buildings and homes are gone. Some neighborhoods are gone. Many people are gone.
I set up a little "shelter" area under our stairs, and we were fortunate not to need it. Once the threat of danger had passed us, we turned in for the night, but it felt hollow, knowing that there were people right in the middle of it.
Today, I am thankful for God's promised presence. I am thankful that He is there for all those who need comfort and refuge. There are so many storms in this life ... I cannot imagine facing a single one without Him.
