Stormy Weather of All Kinds

By Remy Benoit

Somewhere along the line of growing up, we were taught about the Golden Mean. Seems this year's weather never got that lesson. Last night, after almost ten weeks of no rain here in this part of Louisiana after Katrina, the rains fell heavy and sweet, and so very much needed.

But not so in five other states. Severe weather slams nation's midsection At least one dead as twisters hit 5 states. Our prayers are with those whose lives were so torn apart by these twisters.

There are those who say we impact on the weather with our actions, our thoughts. Don't know if this is true, but it couldn't hurt, on all fronts, to be a little nicer to each other. You just never know what might happen. I just have never heard of kindness being hurtful. Keep in mind, especially those of you carrying a world of pain, that does not mean being a doormat. It means drawing lines, honoring yourself, and giving that honoring to the unique existence to others, and to the planet. And, there is so very much we don't know, don't understand about Creation.
