Thunderstorms



I know it's been a while again...sorry. School is a lot more time consuming this semester....not to mention, a little more difficult. Prayers would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Wednesday night I took the kids to church and I ended up sitting in my car writing a paper. Sad...I know...I wanted to go in, but I needed quiet time to write my paper. Praise the Lord I got it done!




We had some thunderstorms that night. I really love thunderstorms! Some people think it's so yucky outside when it's raining, but I find beauty in it. Don't get me wrong....I like sunny days too. (Especially when it rains for more than three days). My hubby and I took our kiddos to the lake last summer for a week's vacation. We all love the lake, camping, and nature. It rained ALL week long. Seriously.....ALL week long. It was nice that we were together with no other distractions though. There were maybe two days when it would clear up for a few hours and we would grab our stuff and swim...then the rain would come back. We were going to stay in a tent, but a friend lent us his pop-up camper...which was really nice, because the rain would've flooded us out! It was so nice to hear the rain on the roof. I remember when I was little hearing the sounds of rain on a tin roof...I love it! Anyway....my point was this....even though the rain keeps you from doing things outside that you want, I like to look at the positive side. You get to cuddle up and watch a movie with your family, you get to sit outside in the carport and watch the rain....I think rainy days are beautiful days too! God made rainy days, just like He made sunny days. I enjoy both...especially when I get to stay inside on the rainy days:)
I hope everyone has a great day! Remember to thank the Lord for all your many blessings!

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
