When our children were little, their favorite Bible story was the one where Jesus calmed the storm. "Hush up Rain, Quiet Down Wind", our son, Ben would paraphrase the command of Jesus. I could not help but think of of his little voice saying those words when I took this photo last week.
We were under a tornado warning when I took this photo of Elliott and Margaret. In fact the sirens were going off and that did not even wake them. Grandpa and I were monitoring the situation and ready to run with these babies to our tornado closet if we needed to do so. Ben had called to check on all of us but mainly on his two precious ones who were away from home. These two were sleeping soundly knowing that Grandpa and Nana were keeping watch during the storm.
How I need to remember that I have ONE who is watching over me in the storms of life. The ONE who is the never failing Anchor. I am so thankful that He is watching over us and I need to remember that I can lay my head down at night and sleep because He has the night watch.
