Southern Sunday

Join Chari at Happy to Design for Sunday favorites and Charlotte and Ginger at Blogger Spirit for Spiritual Sunday and enjoy your Sunday!



What a week it has been. Very busy and very, very hot! My favorite post today for Sunday Favorites is from July – when it was still hot but we got some cooling rain! I took pictures of the clouds as we were traveling down the highway. They were so awesome.

The awesome clouds call to mind God’s glory!

Isaiah 44:22:

I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

Psalm 57:10

For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

Revelation 1:7

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Southern Clouds

Wow, getting this post done during a break from the storms. We were a couple of hours East of here today meeting with clients and when we got back there were small branches in the road and a shutter of a neighbor was broken off. We have had lots of lightening and thunder and rain since we arrived home. Always good to get back home.

I took some pictures of the awesome clouds as we were driving home.

These pictures were taken around 5:30 p.m. with my phone. Wish you could have seen them in person. They were crazy!

We have had some more storms this evening. We really needed the rain! Glad for a break in the heat. What is going on outside in your neck of the woods?

    Hi.. just reading your post now, thanks to problems with Mr. Linky again! Most of the country is basking in the heat, and the Pacific NW is no exception. We have no air conditioning here, and it is MISERABLE! So, seeing your pics of storm clouds and thinking about that strawberry ice cream is respite! Happy Spiritual Sunday.
