Sunshine in Rain...

It has been a blustery day with cloudy skies.
It seems strange having a taste of spring in January.
My windows were wide open with a few pieces of laundry
hanging in them to dry. I love that smell!
The children were outside enjoying the blustery day
as Ally and I sat at the dining room table
enjoying the gusts that blew threw the windows...
she doing her school work, me working on my sewing project.
Did I mention that I just love the smell and the feel
of the wind blowing through the open windows?!

The rain began, the children came inside to color and read.
Ally finishes her work upstairs while I continue sewing,
listening to the rain fall as classical music fills the air.
How relaxing!

Though the sun is not shining, there is a little bit of brightness
at my dining room table that my beloved blessed me with...
just because...

And though the sun is not shining,
there is sunshine in my soul
because the Son is my Light.

I hope you are all enjoying your day,
whatever your weather, whatever your season in life,
may you enjoy the presence of
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

"The sun shall be no more thy light by day;
neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee:
but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light,
and thy God thy glory."
~ Isaiah 60:19

"And the city had no need of the sun,
neither of the moon, to shine in it:
for the glory of God did lighten it,
and the Lamb is the light thereof."
~ Revelation 21:23
