Peace In the Midst

Peace In the Midst

Have you ever been in a hurricane before or better yet, a tornado?  My husband and I were in a hurricane back in 2004 while down at college.  Whoa, talk about scary! Our college had buildings that were made to withstand hurricane force winds and while my husband stayed in his dorm room I stayed in another building there on campus.  There was an eerie calm, a quietness before the storm came.  No wind, no rain, just an overcast sky…
