The Storms Of Life

"One night while my young son, Ryan, was sleeping, a storm began brewing outside.
After a loud clap of thunder, I heard him wake up so I headed toward his room to comfort him.
He asked me to stay with him until he fell asleep.
As I lay there, I realized he hadn't asked me to make the storm go away, but to stay with him.
How many times, I wondered, have I asked God to take away the storms of life, when instead I need to ask him to stay with me and help me weather them more peacefully?"
What a beautiful thought!
