That was kind of beautiful. I don't know what to add, but yes, I do understand, but not from a near death experience. Sometimes it feels after trying to seek Christ my soul gets put back in the right place and I feel the essence of being alive, and stop worrying about small things. He makes me smile in my soul.
I wish I could see tornadoes in real life, but without people at risk, like in a desert. Were you afraid when you saw it? Or just in awe? Do you have preparations for these things?
