How calm the air is.

Preparing my morning coffee a sweet peace over took the milieu. My mind was clear. The smell of coffee stimulates the electric force in my brain, waking me up. Warmth from my cup has a nice feeling on my hand. Walking to the window, looking out I see rolling hills and trees of many colors. Clouds some dark, some grey. They cover the sky as far as I can see. A storm is coming. Heavy rain and lightning will be a pleasant change. The freshness after a long day’s of a raging storm. Keeps me calm.

Night Falls

A young man’s journey

Cold and windy at 8pm. The sky is changing early. Walking home from school. Noticing the changes in the weather, fall is coming. The gust of wind was chilly. Lifting up my collar, burr. Something seems different this time around. Feeling alone I think back to being in high school. I would get picked up my mom. She was always busy making life better for us kid. Decorations were up before we would get home. The smell of food being cooked throughout the house. Dad in the living room reading his paper smoking his pipe. My brother and two sisters running around and fighting over who gets to hold the remote control. Another burst of wind brings me back to reality. Walking to my dorm feeling sad, missing those day. The one thing that is the same is the Fall Night.

Calm within a storm..

Many storms come our way, some last longer with more damage. Others are short and fast.

Sometimes during it, it’s hard to find a calmness. Panic sets in with anxiety. Your mind is scrambling to figure out what has to be done. The unsettleness of not knowing how long will it go on. Personally I stand there getting slammed full force of it. Not remembering I don’t have to.

All I need to do is remember this scripture:

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.

Psalms 56:3 NKJV

https://bible.com/bible/114/psa.56.3.NKJV

When the Holyspirit gives you a thought to pray. Listen to it. It can stop that storm before it starts to stew.

Places that are mentioned, take you there in an instant. You can go visit them. It’s a comforting feeling to know you can be there. So find a good book today and dive into it.
