Journey Through the Rain

Picks For Autumn

Yesterday afternoon when the rain started, I enjoyed a fresh breeze while sitting in the swing on my front porch.
The coolness that swept across my skin with the sound of birds joyfully singing made it feel like spring…there was a peace all around.
As stillness over came me, I opened my book and began to journey away. Sunday afternoons are perfect with a good book...
Ireland was in the mist of another harvest as love was once again redeemed. A love like no other bound together in another time and place. Ballyhara was burning in the faint distance as they embraced each other on the first day of the rest of their lives.
I had found my way to the end of the book while listening to the soft rain fall. A love story.
Scarlett and Rhett were together once more…forever in my heart.

He did it…not only did He give us some rain, He brought it all throughout the night. A soft even steady flow from Heaven. I slept to the sound of softness sprinkling down and the coolness coming through the open window...Quenching the earth from its dryness, bringing back color on this clean crisp morning.
All is well
Thank you dear Lord, for the blessings that you give to us even when we do not deserve them... Continue to hold us in the hollow of Your hand.

~My loves for today~

that feeling of being revived and rejuvenated
answered prayers, as always
coolness on the skin
rain that quenches the dryness
clean crisp air in the lungs
books that carry you to another time
love, forever love


May God give you…
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Hi Cora, what a beautiful post!! I love rain too...especially going so long without it. Maybe that was part of God's plan to help us to appreciate the simple pleasures that we take for granted! :D We also received rain sweeeeet!! :)

Oh Cora, reading your posts are like reading beautiful poetry. Don't you just love the sound of rain? Have a great day!

Love that book! I actually preferred the sequel to Gone With The Wind. I think all the descriptive war scenes were too much for me in the original. Gone With The Wind the movie is still my favorite though!
Have a great weekend Cora!

Carolyn said...

LOL! I am back, Cora! I just wanted to thank you for the info on mtg lending and the advice! :D

Have a great weekend!
