What a beautiful post Patty! If only we all could sing our songs loudly in spite of “whatever” because there was too much living to do. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and sing lots of songs out loud!

Beautifully expressed and captured. Yes we must keep singing and living despite the rain – and the floods from which we narrowly escaped this week.

You are a better woman than me…when it rains…I just want to curl up in bed with a book. No camera girl for me:) Great pics.

It’s certainly been crazier than normal this year. Lovely shots of the rain, Patty!

And who knew that rain could be such a great photo op! I now love when it rains just enough to capture it in a photo but not enough to still get wet on my covered front porch!

{And} the rain did fall

The wind blew and the trees shook and it rained and it poured and we huddled close. And just when we began to wonder if the sun would ever shine again, it did. And things sparkled and glittered and shined. And as the world quieted, truth reflected in light and richness. We are strong and […]

Gorgeous photos. We have had rain here for the last couple of days. The pattern has been about 2 days of sun followed by 5 of rain for over a month. I am a little sun deprived.

Raindrops and Little Ones

It pours down washing darkness from night, dirt from life. And we breathe fresh in, full of spring and hope and life. Cold, damp, inconvenient, how they despise it, as it beckons life full round fragrant. Seasons go ’round and ’round, and ’round. Sun rises and sun sets, seeds change and become, and grow full. […]
