Peace in a storm–not by detaching, being aloof, or withholding compassion.  But by total surrender to the Goodness of God.  With this total surrender, comes total peace.
    God’s specialty is letting things that we pray for not happen, and then creating the answer to our prayers a little later, and much better.  In this way, we learn to dip way down into horrible circumstances, and ride them out.  When we do so in peace, in trust in God, in confidence in Providence, He builds our trust and we enter into and build our home in the safety of the Heart of Christ.
     My latest goal: laugh out loud humor during such a storm.  I think that would be ample proof.
