Recent Weather!

Earlier this week we heard bad weather was on the horizon - it was coming.  No kidding!  I think it was Tuesday evening when the wind started to pick up.  I let my dogs out for the last time that evening and noticed I need to close up the back end of the truck after picking up some boxes nearby I had left out.  All I can say is thank goodness I did!  The wind just keep getting faster and harder, when I got into bed Sophie (who doesn't care for the wind) got in bed and laid close by.  As the it got later the wind just didn't let up I started thinking of Hidalgo and the sand storm especially when I started to smell the dirt!  I just buried my head under the blanket-  no joke!  When I got up the windowsill, my camera case below, my printer etc, had been riddled with dust / dirt.   After I cleaned that up and decided to get a shower - there's a windowsill just above the tub that I had my shampoo etc. sitting on covered, and cleaning that off just made mud. . . Outside don't ask - we still haven't finish that clean up and won't until after all the rain is done.  I've hear it should be this Sunday.

On one hand I'm happy it's been raining to lay the dust down from that windstorm but it hasn't stopped and that creates other problems.  Yesterday, I was able to grab a couple pictures of the start of a beautiful rainbow and double rainbow.  That beautiful reminder of better things.

I've been living in what seems to be stormy weather.  So much of my (and family) recent life as been in hard times.  Some has been from bad things that just seem to happen and some from poor choices - but never the less - with all the things that happen God has a rainbow for us who trust and keep our faith in him.

And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth."Genesis 9:12-16

God is Faithful and does keep his word :)

Hi Vicky! I am so glad that you are back to writing. I have missed you. We started with those storms you are talking about last Sunday. We have had 6 days of rain so far and high winds(I posted some pictures of our flooding on my blog). It seems to have calmed down today of which I am thankful! And, I needed to hear what you said about God being faithful.

My dad was recently diagnosed with a tumor on his lung, so he is headed for a fight. The doctor did say that he is in excellent shape for his age (83), so that will help him fight this battle. Prayers are appreciated!

Welcome back! You were missed! ~Eileen

Remember all for His glory till we all see Him again ~
