My sister wrote a post about last night's storm and I thought I'd share my story, too.*

So I wasn't sleeping well anyways because of a too long afternoon nap and had just drifted off when all of a sudden there was this loud thunder. And thunder's fine. If the storm hits during waking hours I even go sit on the porch to enjoy it. But this was loooong thunder booms paired with synchronized lightening. Our bedroom window was open so I could see and hear it all. Just when I thought it was over, it started again. These horrendously long thunder booms like I've never experienced before. It was scary. Well, I thought, this is it, the end of the world. And I smiled. I smiled. I was happy at the thought of Jesus coming to take me home. I was a little worried about the boys and mom and dad being away, but I knew we'd find them. After a while, I realized that it was just a storm. A weird, loud storm, but a storm none the less. I have to admit, I was just a little disappointed.

Oh well, I guess I have to make another mortgage payment.

*In case you're wondering, yes, my sister and I are both a little crazy and willingly admit, and dare I say, embrace, our craziness.

They had storms like that all the time in Oklahoma and I kind of missed them. So it was nice to hear booming thunder again.

We had them a lot in Georgia, too. I also miss them. (The tornadoes, not so much.) I just lay in bed grinning and enjoying the way the window panes shook with each boom.

I should probably go look and see if any of the tiles blew off our roof!

word verification: "amencide"--when you fall asleep while praying before you're able to formally finish.
