passing storm

Til The Storm Passes By
In the dark of the midnight have I oft hid my face,
While the storm howls above me, and there's no hiding place.
'Mid the crash of the thunder, Precious Lord, hear my cry,
Keep me safe till the storm passes by.

Till the storm passes over, till the thunder sounds no more,
Till the clouds roll forever from the sky;
Hold me fast, let me stand in the hollow of Thy hand,
Keep me safe till the storm passes by.
~ Mosie Lister

Very attractive shot of the lake even if a storm IS brewing.

That's one big lake - Don't think I've ever seen a lake where the other shore's not visible. Off to google it!

Love the quote - off to google that too....no wonder I always spend far too long on the computer!

Love those stormy clouds, moody and majestetic!

I love the contrast of the dramatic, stormy clouds and the light on the still, peaceful looking water! Terrific capture for the day! Happy SWF!

very dramatic! I like how the sun is shining on the water where the clouds are the darkest.

I have joined the Skywatch meme for the first time this week, calling by to visit you as another participant. Lovely words to accompany a stormy sky.

Beautiful, beautiful...as well as scary looking! Thanks for sharing, Sanna!

Such a powerful shot with its combination of dark and light, the vast bulk of the storm cloud and the dancing waves.
