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...

Love this mantel display of candlelight and roses... sigh!

"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 was replaced with
rain clouds, thunder and lightening...

My daughter loves the thunder and darker mornings;
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 already 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,
