The Beauty of Cloudy Days

 
If all of our days were cloudless, oh the beauty we'd miss.
 
 
 
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
(Romans 12:12)
 
 
 
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
(James 1:12)
 
 
 
 
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
(Romans 8:28)

  2. Oh, my those first and last images especially...how stunning! And so true that we would miss such beauty if God only gave us clear blue skies :-)

    1. Marty, thank you. That first image was one I took while on the way home from my parents' place not long ago. I actually convinced The Man that I needed to/must/had to stop and get out of the car for this one and, for once, he complied. That last image was taken in Florida a couple years or so back. We were eating dinner outdoors and what a view.

  4. I rarely comment on blogs, but you touched my heart this morning. I love clouds...but I don't like cloudy days. Thanks for the reminder that clouds AND cloudy days are just part of the experience called life. God Bless.

  11. Those are some beautiful clouds, but I have to say when the sun came out late this afternoon, it really warmed my soul.

  12. I couldn't agree more. I don't often rationalize that in the cloudy days, literal or otherwise, but it is a truth that I do know in my heart. Right now, the sun is shining so brightly here. It's coooooooold, but the sun is shining. How very much the 40 days of rain makes the sun shine brighter.

    And I have to comment about that little precious dress in the previous post. You have a treasure.
