the calm after the storm.

"Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God."
Psalm 42:11

Yes, I have posted a total of 4 times this month! I am on roll! (Please note the sarcastic tone that is behind that comment!) I feel behind on life in general. My to-do list is growing not shrinking and my procrastination is off the charts...blah...blah...blah!

Saturday, our weather was terrible. This is always a bad time of year for the Southeast-weather wise. It rained and stormed something fierce yesterday. It was dark and dreary. Lightening danced all day and the thunder was quick to answer back. But Sunday was beautiful.

It was heavenly. Truly. The was a slight breeze and the birds were singing and the bees, buzzing. The sun was warm and bright and the sky was a crystal, clear shade of blue. The grass was bright green and there was no pollen in sight. It was gorgeous.

The beauty after a storm. It is a beautiful gift from our Maker.

I couldn't help but think how after every storm that has ever shaken my life there is always great beauty and an overwhelming sense of peace that follows.

Every heartache is followed by mending.
Every tear of sadness is quickly out numbered by laughter.
And every memory lost is replaced by joy.

He is the ultimate and contanst healer.

Hi dear Heather, I understand a little of how you feel - it's like 2010 is matching steadily on and I have little to show for it. I had such grand lists and plans for this year but I guess I didn't account for health issues. But God is control!

PS Love the scripture - one of my very favorites, especially to encourage myself in :-)
