Storms, Visible and Invisible

Thinking of those in the path of the storm...

It struck me, as I sit in my sunny California mountain family room, how different the view out the window can be depending on one's location and circumstances. It is so easy to flit through life when things are warm and peaceful, forgetting that the windows of others display a different scene. Surely life is like that; we might go about our daily business, never mindful of the silent, hidden storms of others. May I be ever mindful of the burdens, visible and invisible, that others bear, and may those faced with a tangible threat on the Eastern Seaboard this day be held safely in the palm of God's hand.

OMOST glorious and gracious Lord God, who dwellest in heaven, but beholdest all things below; Look down, we beseech thee, and hear us, calling out of the depth of misery, and out of the jaws of this death, which is now ready to swallow us up: Save, Lord, or else we perish. The living, the living shall praise thee. O send thy word of command to rebuke the raging winds and the roaring sea; that we, being delivered from this distress, may live to serve thee, and to glorify thy Name all the days of our life. Hear, Lord, and save us, for the infinite merits of our blessed Saviour, thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (1789 Book of Common Prayer, US-PD)

Peace, Be Well,
