I love thunderstorms. The wind through the trees rivals the ocean's crashing waves for powerful sounds. The thunder tears through darkened skies as the lightning flashes brilliance for a fraction of a second. The leaves on the trees dance with the rhythm of the rain. The air is clean and and warm. Thunderstorms remind me of God's power and His gentleness all at the same time. Wrath and mercy wrapped in one short span as a symbol that God alone is Sovereign.
