Definitely fit the topic and was very heart-felt. I love the reference to the rainbow at the end. It is easy to look at the storm and miss the blessing (rainbow) at the end.
Powerful piece! I had goosebumps at the end. Well done!

Oh, I love the comparison, using the rain descriptions as the trials.
I liked the analogy in the piece between the pain of the illness but also the hope of the rainbow.

It was written as though this story could have been true in your life. Some storm come unexpectly.

I will pray for your family and other families who face this situation
This is short, but the perfect length. Your analogy is spot on. The descriptions were so powerful. I love how God can take something that seems horrible (motorcycle accident) and turn it into a blessing (discovering the cancer). I have a lump in my throat. You really nailed the topic too.
Your story is awesome in its simplicity, beautiful in its hope.
Although we might not want to face them, God is still there to help us through our "personal stomrs." This was a nice reminder of that. My only complaint is this is too short. I want more.

This was short, but powerful. I love how you include different aspects of the storm: thunder, wind, and rainbow. My son would probably agree with the radiation being the wind that knocks him on his back.

Oh my word, this is beautiful! I'm in awe of how our Lord manages to calm us while we're in the midst of the storms in our lives.

Wow...my heart is moved and I am so in awe of God in how He does things to allow other things to take place.

Thank you for sharing with us and may God bless you and yours abundantly~

This piece just hits a person. You took us on a journey. The rainbow at the end is a nice touch.

Very nice imagery of the storm. Having been through cancer three times, I am enjoying the rainbow.
