Below you will find five words. Tell us the first thing you think of on reading each one. Your response might be simply another word, or it might be a sentence, a poem or a story. (Yes, they're all from Job 38!)
whirlwind: tornado (I live in tornado alley)
foundation: Hymn #442 in the blue hymnal, "The church's one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord"
lightning: This word reminds me of the most frightened I have ever been in my life. My husband and I began our married life living in Colorado. Three weeks into our marriage, we went hiking up Bison Peak. About three-quarters of the way up the mountain, I noticed that the clouds were beginning to gather. I wondered if we should turn back, but my husband assured me that we could make it. I foolishly trusted him, because he was the more experienced hiker. We arrived at the summit and immediately the lightning began striking! I don't remember this, but my husband swears that I asked for a divorce!
den: I wish I had one that I could hide in sometimes!
prey: My feet have been my cat's prey lately!
Iris, I know OJ is random. I really like your blog desciption about being "grounded in love." My spiritual director that i had while in seminary told me that was a phrase i needed to embrace for myself.
What a scary hiking experience! I've heard the thunder on my way down a mountain, coming through the trees, and that was awful, too.
On the den question, my mother used to lock herself in the half-bath with a book!
