Simple Saturdays ~ Rain & Candlelight

Of all types of lighting,
candlelight is definitely
a favorite...

Cheerful, flickering 
casting dancing shadows 
on all objects near,
calms us, relaxes the mind,
releases happiness 
into our souls...

"For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness." Psalm 18:28


 Upon awakening this morning,
the June gloom of summer mornings we so often have
this time of year
replaced with
rain clouds, thunder and lightening!

My daughter loved the thunder and darker morning;
she always burrows deeper
into her covers
and sleeps better, deeper.

Mr. Yoda, however, cowered and barked
when the thunder began!
(we have it so rarely!)

It is wonderful that we have had 
several rainstorms 
this summer!
Very unusual but highly needed
with this the fourth year of drought.
I believe I can speak for all of us

in Southern California,
when I say,
"We are grateful!!!"
(okay, except Yoda and other fearful puppies!)

Hubby is off today at a track meet
our daughter is off at work,
Mr. Yoda and I
have the house to ourselves.

Just a nice morning
with a cup of tea
and, of course,

Blessings to you,
Barb :)
