Clouds

31 Aug

On the Porch

We were excited to be in the path of totality for the August 21, 2017 eclipse. We made plans, invited family and even had some unexpected but joyfully welcome family and friends arrive. We put up a screen tent, set up cameras and even some chaise loungers for optimal viewing.

 

 

As totality approached we were dismayed to see clouds streaming in.

 

 

We seemed to be holding our breaths as the clouds covered the sun. Then for a brief and amazing moment, the full eclipse blazed in all its glory.

Do you ever feel like clouds are moving quickly over your life? I am feeling that as I type this but just as the sun burst forth from the clouds, I know that God will burn away my clouds and redeem my sorrow.

 

Do you not know?  Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. Isaiah 40:28-29

Where Do I Go To Cry

From My Heart

                                    Life presents many challenges-
                                    When confronted, I honestly try,
                                    But when bad things happen,and they surely do,
                                    Where do I go to cry?
                                    It isn’t gender related,
                                    nor is it ruled by a calendar page.
                                    Bad things happen to good people
                                    everywhere,
                                    Regardless of sex or age.

 

                                   Emotional tears are the body’s way
                                   of reducing stress-
                                   So let those tears flow
                                   in times of sadness… or happiness.
                               
                                  Mathew 5:4
                                  “Blessed are they that mourn,
                                  for they shall be comforted.”
                                  Psalm 30
                                  “Weeping may endure for a night,
                                  but joy comes in the morning.”
