Powerful Joy

41. Thunderstorms & Lightning

There is something about lightning, about a thunderstorm to me that I find amazing.  I think it comes the closest to really representing what the fear of God is really about.  The power behind them, the glorious light & sound.  Power to kill you in an instant, & yet such amazing beauty.

For me, its indescribable.  But I hope in some inner level with each of us, understandable.

42. My sister Elena.

I am afraid I don't tell her quite as often as I should, but I am so proud of her for all that she has come from & done.  She is such a strong person, & no matter how many times or how deep she fell she was always willing to pick herself back up & press forward.  She's accomplished so much, & is one of the most beautiful people I have seen. Passion & drive, interesting, unique, silly & quirky, a deep thinker & someone I look up to.  I see the hand of God upon her so much, I think He took extra time when forming her, adding intricate details that we will never completely be able to discover them all.

I am proud that He chose to bless me with being her little sister.
