All Things Beautiful

Many days I fail miserably. I suffer from that disease called not "seeing the forest for the trees." Have you ever found yourself not appreciating the beauty around you? Today was one of those days for me. We are having rain again and not just lovely showers but torrential, lightning zipping across the sky, hail the size of golf balls... rain! And as you can tell by the previous sentence... IT WAS DOING NOTHING FOR MY MOOD! lol... It has rained so much this spring, I swear I am in the state of Washington instead of Kentucky!

Dear hubby and I made a trip into town this afternoon after work to run a few errands. And it hit me like a golf ball or should I say hail... (yes, I am inserting some goofy humor...) The lawns, the fields, everything looks so LUSH. I don't remember the landscape here looking so well, beautiful! As I got out of the car, I realized how fresh the air felt after the most recent shower. And then I realized just how God provides. He sends showers to replenish, revitalize and cleanse the land. Wow! Isn't it awesome how the Creator reveals himself in the creation? Blessings to you and yours this day! I look forward to chatting with you again!

This is gorgeous. I love the dp that you used. I was thinking along the lines of your thoughts about the rain that I was driving in today. Thanks for sharing your card with the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.
