Oh Kathleen, you are a sweet dear!
O pray that God cpvers each and everyones heart and homes. The srorm of life and the storms put intop action as the result from the weather can be scary at times. But as we turn to God there is no REAL fear, for we know our father will carry us though the darkest and mopst voilent srorms. I abmit, I live in Ohio, and although we do have tornados that is all I have experienced. Some have been very very close to my house. Last year there were two which were within 15-20 miles of my house!
I concider myself futunate that i have not expereiced many earthy storms. I have been through emotional storm though in the past, and I think they are just as bad or worse sometimes. I am grateful to God for every emotional storm becasue they have always brought me to a close relationship with God. It is just like when you expereince an emotional time with someone you are close to or love. Being with each other as you expereice pain brings you to a new level with that person. As I am going thriugh anything with God I seek Him in many ways and it has always helped. Talking to God more, reading the bible moore, praying more, listening to teachings for a longer period of time, whatever, just doing more of what I normally do. I encourage you to do this as well. You will never regret it.
