Raindrops on Roses . . .
These are a few of my favourite things . . .
Sunshowers . . . they are like magic. The sun is shining brilliantly and yet the rain falls. I can remember ducking under neat the overhang of a garage room once when I was a child. The sun was blaring, but if I held my arm out just beyond the overhang, my hand was filled with drops of rain falling. Wonderfully mysterious, almost supernatural. Magical.
Drops of rain falling on water . . . in puddles, in lakes, in rivers and streams etc. Mesmerizing. I could watch the patterns it makes for hours . . . .
The flicker of flames in a log fire . . . as they arch and lick across the wood they consume . . . the snap and the crackle . . . the warmth of the glow . . . the smell of burning logs . . . equally as mesmerizing. When I was married before we had a log stove in the living room. I could lay on the sofa for hours watching the logs burning through the glass window.
When I get to heaven I am having a log fire.
Old barns and sunflowers . . . individually and together . . .
Lily of the Valley . . . even if I have never been able to get it to grow in my own garden . . .
Dining Al Fresco with friends . . . bees buzzing . . . birds singing . . . glasses clinking . . . sparkling conversation . . . good food . . . the sun setting . . .
Early morning solitude . . . that's me time . . . prayer time . . . think time . . . write time . . . just me and Mitzie time . . .
Hearts . . .
The Outlander series . . . one and two . . . I have a thing for men in kilts . . . and Scottish Lairds . . . romance in the highlands . . . Scotland. I want to go there.
Your laugh for the day . . .
A thought to carry with you . . .
"When difficult things occur in our lives,
what is our immediate response?
Is it confusion or doubt or spiritual withdrawal?
Is it a blow to our faith?
Do we blame God or others for our circumstances?
Or is our first response to remember who we are
. . . that we are children of a loving God?"
~Donald L Hallstrom
Remember who you are . . .
