Soaked…

Rain, rain, rain – for weeks. The canvas canopy over an outdoor swing was sagging – I pushed up and – whoosh – over the edge cascaded water. It caught the attention of my one year old grandson, but I hadn’t noticed he had walked…

Wipers…

I hear this commercial every now and then talking about how cars didn’t always have wiper blades. A small accessory on today’s cars, but without them we wouldn’t get far in a heavy rain on the highway. When the children were young, a fun treat…

Have It All…

It’s been a long, hot summer  – and not just here, and not just the weather. Here the usual relief of afternoon downpours often haven’t happened. Then there’s the flooding in Louisiana – and we count our blessing of not too much. There’s the…

Partly Sunny…

     I’ve decided the weather anchors shouldn’t say ‘partly cloudy’. Why not partly sunny? Instead of chances of rain, what about the chances of sun? It’s all how we look at it. The Father calls us to be light, to bring light to dark…

Summer Ribbons…

     Summer – this gift tied up with ribbons of life… Creation is never more alive than in the heat and busyness that is summer. Bunnies abound in our grasses right now. Birds chase around comically. All busily eating and putting on winter’s fat…

Thru the Window…

Clouds swirl, turning from white to gray to almost black. One large drop splatters, followed by scattered pelts of drops here and there. Drooping heads and wilted petals need relief. Suddenly – with a whoosh – the rain begins to soak thirsty ground. Winds…

THUNDERSTORM

The rumble starts in the distance as the skies grow dark. Slowly as the minutes tick by the air grows heavy. The weight of it settles in and lights come on. In the distance a thunderclap, no sign of the rain or the lightning….
