The Storm

Going out on a limb here again, and attempting to post something new...  Right around 7pm this evening, an unexpected storm blew through.  The winds were crazy and rain so heavy the lights flicked on and off throughout.  We even had a TORNADO warning, which is ALMOST unheard of here...

After the storm, sunset filled my livingroom with rays of gold through the open window and back door, and as night set slowly set in the sky became a vision of beauty to behold...  Probably my most treasured gifts from nature's hand:

I didn't even dare touch this image in editing...  I would've surely ruined it.

Just another reminder, at how beautiful life is, how beautiful WE are, and how many blessings can follow even the most treacherous of storms.

And thank you all... For your words of support and for your kindnesses.  For your friendships and for your hugs.  Seen and unseen, I truly do feel you all by my side.  It helps, more than you'll ever know.  ::smile::

That really was a lot of rain.  I wish we had seen a bit of that storm.  The weather compared our weather patterns with that of a desert.....great, always wanted to live in the Sahara.  I sunset like that is a great reminder of what things are important in life.  I'm so glad you got a chance to see that, and better yet photograph it so you can always remember it.

I think that sky was painted just for you. And I think you deserved it.

What you said here: "Just another reminder, at how beautiful life is, how beautiful WE are, and how many blessings can follow even the most treacherous of storms..."  can be applied to so many aspects of our lives.  Again.. you have such a beautiful way with words.

Thanks for sharing that video...  all I can say is "Wow!"

Hugs and love
