When the Storm Rages

Monday, November 18, 2013

This past week we had an ice and wind storm that took out our power for almost 24 hours. Storms can do that.  Take away your power.  The power to continue on in life. There is a way to overcome the storm.  Through the power of praise. To get the power back we praise Him.
