Lessons from the Yard

 We had an 80% chance of rain and storm showers for today, but that didn't stop God from giving us a beautiful morning of sunshine, birds singing and flowers blooming this morning.  As I made the stroll up the driveway this morning, I snapped these shots in the front yard.  I stood still with my hot cup of Joe for about five minutes, just soaking in the beautiy of nature and thanking God for another beautiful day. 
Well, the beauty didn't last too long - with clouds forming and rain coming and thunder rolling in.  But these beautiful shots reminded me that God provides blessings in everything - if we will just be still long enough to enjoy what He presents to us each day. 

Did you take a moment today to find the blessing in the eye of the storm?  Thank God for it - even if you missed it today - and ask Him to show you the beauty in it now.  He will.  He always does.
