People sometimes compare events in life to a storm. Storms usually have a build-up - sometimes that can be gradual but at other times they can rear up very quickly. Then there is the storm itself - of short or long duration but usually having some degree of violence or out-of-the-ordinary happenings. And, after the storm, there is peace, although there can also be 'mopping up' required. Things usually aren't as they were before the storm.
Our storm has now passed us by. It is by no means forgotten and there will be 'mopping up'. But we'll be looking for that peace, and especially that 'peace that passes all understanding.
Note: although I followed the ABC principle, circumstances prevented me from using my camera for the past couple of days; hopefully I'll be back behind the lens shortly. In the meantime I'm relying on my archives.
