Night vigil

This is a photo of stability in the midst of turmoil. Last Friday was a stormy one in the Midwest. A town in Kansas was leveled by a tornado. The storm system stretched as far north as Wisconsin. The clouds in this photo represent the farthest reaches of the massive storm front.

Yet there is peace and stability even as the storm clouds roll overhead. The Bible describes God as a rock, a fortress, a very present source of help in times of trouble. Can’t get much more stable than that.

This month marks the two-year anniversary of Points of Light. I started it to show off some of the photographs of lighthouses I had taken. My photography has stretched and grown into different areas in the last two years, but my fascination with lighthouses continues, because they represent what I think all of us are looking for.

Beautiful photo...My prayers go out to those people in Kansas that lost everything. You are so right, our stability is "The Rock".
Very nice visiting your post.
