Keeping it simple this week...

As you know, if you read any of my stuff, the last few weeks have been pretty rough on my kiddos. Therefore it has been so very rough on this mommy's heart. But as the old quote goes; "what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger," or something like that. Anyhoodle, I believe that. I believe we have walked through some fire lately, but you know what? I think we are stronger, closer and more in love with our God, then ever before. I am happy to report that I have two very happy kiddos, who are doing just fine. God is good.

I said all of that to say, that if you don't mind, I think I will keep things simple this week. (Unless something BIG happens, of course.) No deep soul searching posts, just simplicity. Finding pure joy in the little things...


To start?








Beautiful, huh? This was our beautiful blue sky, taken the day after the storms... How something so beautiful could have been so dark and angry the night before. There might not be a rainbow present in this picture, but I believe it still proves there is beauty "after" the storms of life...

Oops! And I said I would keep it simple and not go to the "deep" side of things. Guess I just can't help myself sometimes.

Here is hoping and praying you and yours have a beautiful week, filled with BEAUTIFUL BLUE SKIES.

Sis,
Thanks for the reminder. I was thinking a "tad grey" this morning, but you've put the sun and "Son" in my day!

Beautiful picture. Love the analogy of blue skies after the storm pertaining to your kiddos trials of late. Sometimes these life lessons are hard, but you are right, they do make us stronger. Love and blessings, Angel

Beautiful skies, indeed.

So glad that y'all pulled safely through those storms. Nasty, huh?

Love you muchly.

The darkest night is before the Dawn. It will develop character too. Your children are wonderful examples of Christ. Beautiful sky.
