Stilling the storm

I live in a subtropical part of the United States that is prone to hurricanes and tornadoes. One morning I felt impelled to deeply ponder and study this passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “There is no vapid fury of mortal mind—expressed in earthquake, wind, wave, lightning, fire, bestial ferocity—and this so-called mind is self-destroyed” (p. 293). 

Soon I went into the kitchen and saw out the window that the sky had turned ominously black. Suddenly, ​what looked like a tornado touched down, heading directly toward the house. I declared a very firm “No,” and I watched the tornado just vanish. The sun came out as if nothing had happened. The neighborhood experienced only one downed tree, and everyone was safe. A family member who was working at a local cable television company heard of a tornado landing in our area and came rushing to the house to be sure that I was OK.
