This last week we’ve been the receiving end of some major thunderstorms during sleeping hours.
The grass has been sopping wet and the ditches full.
With these storms came something beautiful.
The rhododendron in our back yard has been blooming in a gorgeous way the past many days, and with the hard rains and wind a few branches had broken away.
Although they were broken and taken from the bush…the flowers blooming remained and in tact and maintained their beauty.
I went and retrieved the blossoms and put them into a pitcher on my kitchen table. We have enjoyed their beauty and lovely fragrance.
I was reminded of times in life that storms come…the thunder may boom…the lightening may flash…
Yet beauty can come through the dark clouds…and we can enjoy that beauty if we just reach out and grasp it…
