About a week ago, I went to sleep lulled by thunder and lightning. So many people don't like storms, but I find the comforting in the noise and strength. Apparently, it went on for several hours. The news in the morning reported trees damaged and uprooted, power outages, even tornados. An inch of rain fell.
I walked my yard in the morning with the dogs. We had minimal damage, mostly just branches.
There's always debris with I don't mind gathering. It's a time of reflection. This particular morning I was thinking about pruning. The necessity of it. The pain and aches that are present at times. The joy that is usually the end result. It's not always a bad thing.
Pruning helps the growth and overall health. Keeps the decay at bay.
It helps to look past the surface and the facade. Go deeper. There is beauty there.
So we've had rain and . . .
With rain loving feathered friends - because I set up the birdbath right under my dining room window so I can watch them come and go.
And snow !!!
It started mid-afternoon and this is what we woke up to.
By lunchtime, it was all gone.
In the meantime, I'm keeping busy indoors.
I made a doll-size quilt from a mini charm pack I had laying on my cutting table.
I sorted and played with my Tilda fabrics.I'm behind making blocks, so I wanted to get started.
And I finished Betsy's Closet, one of my goals for April.
Hope you all have a good, productive week.
Stay safe and healthy.
Thanks for stopping by.
Don't worry about anything;
instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, thank him for all he has done.
Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. He will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
