    Great storm from the Gulf
    Let your rage subside
    Be your winds calm
    Make low your tide

    Your strength seems wicked
    You are unforgiving
    You are hard and tough
    The land has yielded
    It has had enough

    You have made your point
    Yet you want to do more
    Nothing can withstand you
    Not the money of the rich
    Not the cries of the poor

    Great storm
    You've become the dark side of nature
    Attacking from behind skies colored gray
    Relentless rain your calling card
    As flood levels rise each storm-filled day

    But you and I both know
    Your destructive tenure will be short-lived
    Fot the power you so readily display
    Is a power not yours
    The power is his

    And in his time
    And through his will
    You'll be exposed as a puppet
    You great storm
    Will soon be still

    BE

    God has blessed, Barry was mild. It's amazing to hear and feel a hurricane ... the wind and the rain so heavy sounding like men stomping on your roof ... working in perfect harmony ... no power, no phone ... all is quiet ... as i hear and feel God shake my earth ... awesome ... humbling ... it's called faith ... the next day all is still ... peace once again upon the earth.

    Heartbeat ... thank you for this :)

    Feeling

    the affects of Barry in the 'ham was/is a glorious thing. In agreement with Destee...it's humbling in the eye of a storm...there is a stillness...there is peace. God is good. All the time.

    Feelin you feelin Barry...and the awesome power of God.

    Thank you BE
