I was pulling out of my driveway this morning, then I stopped and ran back inside to get a CD – one of my favorite albums with one of my all time favorite songs on it – Storm, by Fernando Ortega.  All day long yesterday I wish I’d of had the CD with me…it would have been perfect to listen to in the midst of the storm outside.


(You can buy the CD here.)

Yesterday’s storm was a long one.  The clouds were heavy with rain and pretty much it was a downpour all day.  Today everything looks clean and fresh.  The mountains on the way to work were a spectacular sight to see with the fresh snow that fell during yesterday’s storm.  Storms have often been used as a great way to express what happens in our lives – it’s so true!  I have often looked back and realized that it was a “lifestorm” that clarified things for me, or brought about change, or moved me when I would have been otherwise unmoveable. 

Here’s the words to the song, Storm – still love this song, always will. 

STORM, by Fernando Ortega

Sometimes it takes a storm
To really know the light
The scent of rain
The weight of clouds
Pulling down the sky

Sometimes it takes a storm
To know how you feel
To understand indigo
And the varnished sun
Lighting up the fields

It takes the rain between the lines
To know what sorrow finds
The way a cloud divides sometimes
The clearing and the blue
I love you

I was just passing through
And taken by surprise
Between the black sky and the blue
Between the black sky and the blue
I love you, I love you

Don’t be afraid of a storm in your life, sometimes it’s what’s required to help you really “see”!
