I was at a wonderful Catholic Women's Conference on Saturday and surrounded by wonderful Catholic women and great speakers! (Dr Janet Smith was the main speaker and she was wonderful!) A local, young priest was one of the speakers too and he gave a wonderful Homily. I have never heard the Calming of the Storm explained the way he explained it. He talked about our lives and how busy they are, with activities and stresses and that is like the storm. God is always there. Although, He might seem to be sleeping to us sometimes, He is always there. In the boat, He was able to sleep, He was God afterall. All it took was one word from Him and it all stopped. All the troubles, fears, anxieties, stresses. He is there still, and He is in control, no matter how bad this storm gets (life) He is there waiting for us to "wake him" (pray) and ask Him to help us.
Look at the 2 pictures closely, they are beautiful and well worth contemplating.
Blessings to you all!
