Do you ever have those moments when the beauty of something, takes your breath away? Let's face it, thunderstorms and rain showers happen often. If living in Texas has taught me anything, it's that when weather events happen here, they never happen in half measures ...... This place has taught me what the word STORM means in no uncertain terms - both in the Winter and Summer (and Literal - but I'll save that for another time and place), sense of the word.

Yesterday's storm was a "take your breath away" kinda storm. The rain came down hard and fast, turning the sky very dark, roads into rivers and the streams in our greenbelt, into raging torrents for a short time. But as fast as it came with all of its ferocity, so it left. The receding storm was nothing short of magnificent ....

 Boy Child playing in the rain .... Boys will be boys :-) You can see how the rain was running down the road in a river.

 This is the greenbelt ... the ducks normally can't use it as their private pool !!!

 Then as quickly as the storm clouds gathered, so they moved out, and the sky was magnificent.

 This is our greenbelt .... you can normally step across that little stream !!! But, for me, the piece de resistance was that rainbow ... it was breathtaking, and it stretched right across the sky :-) For a very short time, it was a double rainbow. The light and colors of everything, not just the rainbow, were so brilliant !!!

And God said,
"This is a sign of the Covenant I am making
between me and you and every living creature with you,
a Covenant for generations to come.
Genesis 9:12

Wishing y'all a fantastic week - our kiddos are headed back to school tomorrow, after a very relaxing Spring Break week.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting :-)
