We had quite a storm blow through this morning.
The wind was howling and the whole house seemed to shake. The rattling of the downspouts and windows woke me up. The lights went out and I wondered if we should head down to the basement. I finally fell back asleep until hubby got up for work. I rested in bed listening to him getting ready for his day.
The desire for coffee led me downstairs.
As I looked outside, the sky was still stormy, but the rain had stopped.
In the far northwestern corner of the horizon, I could see a sliver of blue and white. I sat down with my first cup of coffee and crocheted a couple of squares. Then I got out my devotional and read about Hezekiah, Paul and the Lords great mercies.
O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.
In a way, I wish the skies would stay gray and we'd have a steady rainfall. I have housework to do and I need to start thinking about getting organized for the school year.
It's hard to believe summer is almost over. It seems so cliche to say that time goes by quickly; but in truth, it does. I like fall and getting back into the school routine; but, it's hard to let go of summer's freedom.
I'm off to make a list of things I want to accomplish today. I'm more productive with a list.
May your day be richly blessed.
