After the Rain


Sunrise after rain
Morning dew upon the grass
Misty morning joy


After the rain fell
Blossoms appear to have wept
Not in sadness, joy

The Joy in Tea Talk


Sometimes, during my hours of prayer, I picture myself as a piece of stone before a sculpture who intends to make a statue our of it. Presenting myself like this before the Lord, I beg him to form form in my soul his perfect image and make me wholly like Christ. ~Brother Lawrence~


I'm having...Good Earth decaf original tea.  It has such a wonderful aroma and it tastes so very good.

My teacup... one of is my favorite cup.




I'm feeling... energized.  We started a new upgrade for the computers at work yesterday and after some initial glitches that were resolved the day went rather well.  Looking forward to todays adventure!

On my mind...Bible Study tonight and and RCIA presentation the needs some revisions.  Have an entire weekend to work on this so it should be good.

Please join Ruth at Tea Talk today.

Today I also join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

We had a lovely gentle rain last night.  None of those high winds and branches being blown from the trees kind of rains.  Just the earth pampering rain.  It's been a long time since we've had one of them.















Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

Only a glimpse of the moon through the clouds.  Except for 2 or 3 days here and there the last three weeks rain has been our constant companion.  Last year was drought.  This year flooding.  I know know why I am so grumpy, sad, and mournful.  Sunshine lifts the spirits and feeds us.  Yes, my Vitamin D level is diminished.  So everyday I remind myself,  "This is the day the Lord has made...Rejoice and be glad, you silly girl!"  And so today I will try again!

Taking a walk in the garden after the rain offers us a variety of beautiful attractions.  After this particular rain, because of the high humidity the dew lingered long enough for us to enjoy the glistening of the water drops left behind.  They bring to mind the waters of baptism.  The crystal clear beauty as the sun reflects its light through the drops.  That newness of life they reflect!

Please visit Mary and The Little Red House. Her pictures are grand and so are the pictures of others!

I would also like to remind you that Wednesday is Adventure Tour Express.  Be thinking about the adventure you would like to share on our journey together!
