Day Four -- Beauty in the Storm

Copyright 2009.  Taken in Lexington Kentucky during the ice storm of January '09.

*I was sure by now God, you would have reached down
and wiped our tears away.
Stepped in and saved the day.
But once again,
I say 'Amen', and it's still raining.

But as the thunder rolls
I barely hear you whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you."
And as your mercy falls I raise my hands
and praise the God who gives and takes away.

And I'll praise you in this storm,
and I will lift my hands,
for you are who you are,
no matter where I am.

And every tear I cry,
you hold in your hand.
You never left my side,
and though my heart is torn...

I will praise you in this storm.*
