... in being awoken

Lightening over the city

I had spent far too long in the night worrying about something I could do nothing about in bed.  After over three hours of this I decided to say my prayers as I needed to be up in time to do the readings at Mass in the morning.

I need not have worried about oversleeping; a flash of lightning carried an unmistakeable message closely followed by thunder and the clatter of very heavy rain.  I was up in good time to do all that I needed to do and still get to church in time, the storm having abated.  As I came out of church the sky was blue and the warm sun shining once more.
