Today’s prompt is the word “clouds” and today’s reading included Proverbs 3:19-20:

By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,
    by understanding he set the heavens in place;
by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
    and the clouds let drop the dew.

I’ve been caught in a number of storms lately.  Actually, it has been a stormy summer (and I love it) in Edmonton this year.  Not since the first summer I visited here do I remember this many rainstorms and thunderstorms.  I consider it very much a blessing to be here writing this short devotion while rain falls loudly outside my window.

Yesterday, I got caught in the hailstorm in downtown Edmonton.  Perhaps it went on for 20 minutes, but it seemed like hours.  I tried to get off the road under some sort of canapé of trees or some other covering, but could not find a good spot.  It was somewhat frightening to be driving while hail noisily pelted the roof and windows of my car.  Of course, I prayed for protection.  But I also complained about being in the midst of such a violent storm.

Today, the storm clouds rolled in again as I parked at home at Taylor Seminary.  I got stuck over in the seminary offices when the boomers started.  In a violent thunderstorm even a short distance of a few hundred feet is too far to walk.  This was one of those times.  So, I waited it out.

I chatted with a few people while I waited for the storm to pass.  It was fun and I received some encouragement.  God knows when the clouds let drop the dew.

Ciao for now.

  1. Wonderful picture and equally wonderful summary of your day under siege from heaven’s wrath or what seems like it.
