The dreary weather permeates my pores and seeps into my spirit. The rain reproduces the mud I think should have dried up by now. Puddles reflect things I'd rather forget so I tiptoe around them to avoid murky waters. Though I know something better lies beyond them, clouds prevent me from seeing clearly. The dark skies bid me to hide and I gratefully oblige.

But tomorrow is a new day. And though sometimes I wish for time to stand still, this day I am glad it marches on.

Thank You, Lord.

Praying for sunny days, and sweet smelling roses. Inhale the fragrance.
A bit of a lift?

Praying for new beginnings for you!Sometimes we have to go into the valley to climb up to the top of the mountain so we can breath clean air!! Does that make sense? God Bless You!

Oh I wish I would've read this last week when it was dark, gloomy & rainy out! Since we only live about 45 minutes apart I know you know what days I'm talking about! :)

You are right, Tami - sometimes we are unable to see beyond the dreary skies.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week, despite your down-cast spirit. I hope that you are doing much better today.

Be blessed today and always.
