Hold On

The Santa Ana winds were gusting earlier and I wasn't thrilled. My alarm clock was blinking because our power went out twice and I felt completely disoriented. I didn't know what time it was and I found myself listening to the wind wondering when it was going to blow in my window. I might pop "The Holiday" in later and watch Kate Winslet deal with Santa Ana winds.

As I was looking at the trees blowing back and forth in my backyard, I thought of the wind as God reminding me that He is in control and bigger than everything in my life. Thank goodness that is true. Also I realized there are other things to be thankful for: I don't have to deal with tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, etc in Southern CA. So I guess I can handle the winds.
