Written while Cody paces with endless panting of anxiety as the wind picks up and the rain begins. The first roll of thunder sends my great dane Jayden to my side with lightning speed as we count Cody's pants to the next rumble. It;s funny that my girls are so bothered by storms when in earlier years they would not of even woken up. Is it true that as we age life's storms seem to get more imposing and threatening.
The Impending Storm
The wind has picked up and I feel the breeze
Almost the same time as the rain beats down and makes my dogs freeze
Ears perked and body's stiffen waiting for the impending boom
Clinging to my side as if I could keep them from impending doom
I feel the breeze again and this time I smell the rain as it beats against the pane
And I think Oh Lord come and cleanse me till no sins remain
For I am just filthy rags and have no worth you see
Apart from the grace you give and the new life you extend to me
As I listen for your voice I hear raindrops pelting down
Are they your tears cried out for the lost that can't be found
Lightning rips across the sky and I see your power
The crack of thunder makes me jump your rage makes me cower
Are you upset because your beloved are not doing what we ought
For we have all fallen asleep and your kingdom is not sought
Is that why with the coming years the storms have gotten so much stronger
To rudely shake us from our beds to say you won't tolerate this much longer
For as we advance in age the stakes are so much higher
Will we live out the path you chose for us when you plucked us from the fire
Or will we simply find a place to hide and ignore the fury of the storm
entrenched in all the world has to give and think this is the norm
As the thunder fades and the rain slows down to a more gentle sound
I thank you Lord for this wake up call to seek your face while you can be found
For I know someday the winds will blow and show the fury of your wrath
But I am safe and secure in you, as you allow the coming winds to pass
