Fury and Light
With rumbling fury, the clouds darkened around us as thunder echoed across the valley. Where a few minutes ago bright sunshine sparkled, the sky was eclipsed by billowy waves of gray and black. Thick drops of rain began to cascade from the heavens and, for a brief ten minutes, the parched desert soil was nourished with rejuvenating water. As quickly as the transformation occurred, it departed, continuing its journey across the landscape. In its wake, a massive rainbow spread across the skyline, the multihued ends anchoring to the distant mountains while its zenith remained shrouded by the clouds. As we stood outside and watched the fury rumble onward, a bright beam of sunlight broke through its canopy. A brief glimpse of what the world would soon return to. In my heart, I felt witness to both God's fury and redemption. It is a moment I will not soon forget.
