WHAT A WAY TO START THE DAY!!  And NOT when it was planned to start.  However, that is life here in the Ozarks.  BUT GOD is in control, and He will take care of us through it all...

Morning wakes me with a loud bang!

Storms are moving through.
I turn the news on and see how much
damage it will do!
The rain is necessary, yes,
but NOT tornadoes cursed!
When those occur with all their violence,
it's the very worst!

"Oh Father, thank You for the rain
with all its benefits.
In the summer, it's so welcome
from the heat that hits!
But Lord, the 'violence' that may come
with any storm that be-
we could surely do without!
Too much we already see!
So, Lord, please take care of all the folks
that are in this storm's path,.
I know the lakes will benefit
from mother nature's wrath!
But there is so much more that comes
with storms that come our way,
and its damage is not welcome
at ANY time of day!"

The majesty and wonder-
that same exact a price!
And what a violent storm can do,
not ever is it nice!
We pray for ALL enduring such,
protection comes from God.
In spite of all that happens, His
protection is not flawed!

Please keep all of those who have been affected by storms of late in prayer so that they will be protected and can recover.  The Word of God says that "It rains on the just and the unjust."  So please pray for ALL of them.  God can protect and provide...AND HE WILL!
