"Fair are the lilies that weather the storm." 
                                           Amy Carmichael poem
   It started out a beautiful, cool morning, and I headed out to a country meat market to buy bacon for company that's coming.  The blue sky and a bank of bright tiger lilies caught my eye, so I stopped and noticed the clouds begin to rapidly move.  I sat and watched the storm approach.




   A life storm came up this week, and every bit as fast as this rainstorm did.  It's not over, but I have dealt with most of it and I'm counting my blessings. 

"Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm."                                  (Anonymous)


  1. We've got tropical storm Flossie heading our way and we're all holding our breath for Monday and Tuesday. I'm hoping it wears out before it reaches us. I love that beautiful orange day lily.

  2. I hope you weather both storms well. The lilies look beautiful and the sky menacing.
