thunder storms

        Gracie shakes like a leaf whenever there's a thunder storm. I pat her and tell her it's okay, but she shakes anyway. People do, too, but they do a better job of hiding it. Sometimes I wonder how many of the people I meet on the street or around conference tables or even dinner tables are shaking on the inside, just like Gracie. Probably most of them, especially if you count the ones who postpone it until the middle of the night. It makes sense, because there are a lot of storms. That's why you need good, strong Company.

"Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not look anxiously about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you. . . ." Isaiah 41:10.
