Word-filled Wednesday: After the storm

Renee Ann Smith —  March 30, 2011 — 62 Comments

This photo is from an ice storm that hit us a few years back. On a normal day, this tree soaks in the sun, uses it for food, and does not reflect the light so directly. But after making it through the storm, the tree shines . . . I’m thankful that God’s love is more than enough to help me weather the storm!
