Rain, Rain, Rain!

Rain, rain rain!
That's all the weather has been doing the past couple days! Dreary rainy days can often mean dreary grumpy people! But guess what? I ain't goin' to be one of them peoples! No sirree, Bob! No sirree, Bob! I have purposed in my heart that I will live for Jesus in rain or shine by God's grace! Therefore, if it is a rainy day then that means that I must be a spot of sunshine in the rain. ;) So how have I been able to remain cheery in these rainy days. Well, lets take a peek and see.

Tuesday I went bowling with most of my family. I do not have any skill in that game, whatsoever, but I was able to enjoy myself quite well and it was a good activity to play since we had to be inside. Not to mention the fun and laughter we had together and a wonderful memory we made that day. That day will be remembered as a fun day with my family rather than a gloomy rainy day.

Yesterday while at work (a little restaurant) I tried to make sure that every customer that came in received at least one bright smile that day, even though it was a dreary rainy day! What is a day without a smile? I hope you made someones day yesterday, too, by passing on a smile!

Today I have managed, thus far, to keep a cheery disposition by studying hard, drinking hot tea (I won't mention what we put IN our tea to give us such a cheery heart [mischievous grin implied]), watching Mr. Popper's Penguins, laughing hysterically, being crazy, taking a walk in the rain (Who says you can't play in the rain?) with my 8 year old sister while we tried to solve a quandary, and writing letters to friends.

So what do you do in rainy weather? Do you find yourself getting gloomy when the weather seems gloomy? let us not be gloomy glum weather, but rather a spot of joy and sunshine to others! We should live for Jesus no matter what happens! God made the rain and he made us, so lets dance in the rain for God's glory!

Have a happy day, my friends!


  1. And now it's snow!

    Ooops, I didn't even read the post. All I saw was rain, rain, rain.... And then I was like, "Snow, Snow, Snow!"

  2. Thanks for being a bit of sunshine in my life! I love you so much! Now you need to be sunshine in the snow! Yes! So much snow that it is actually sticking!

  3. That is a great reminder! Hey and then after all the rain we got some snow!

Winnie the Pooh

I have a confession. Ok, not really a confession because just about everyone who actually knows me knows it and I am not ashamed of it, but....

I have an obsession, of sorts, with Winnie the Pooh! Yes, go ahead and laugh, but seriously, I kind of like him a lot (ok, not as much as Cowboys, but that is a different story).

So my car has a little Winnie the Pooh hanging on the mirror and he basically is my friend that accompanies me on all my road trips and road adventures of getting lost (happens a lot).

So, whether you like it or not this post is Winnie the Pooh quotes. I probably just scared away half my readers, but you know if you can't put up with my Winnie the Pooh obsession for just one day than that is really just too bad. Be thankful I did not decide to do a Seven Brides for Seven Brothers post instead. I would understand if you left me after that. That would be the testing of whether we are true friends or not, but this time I am just sticking with Winnie the Pooh. ;)

So …

A Peek Into Our Life

Sometimes life looks a little bit like this.

I crochet while he reads.

Quiet mornings where we can sit close.

The Lonesome, the Loner, and the Lone Person

The lonesome person, the loner, and the lone person; they sound a bit alike, but they're all a little different.

The lonesome person. I see them on the street walking past or sitting quietly watching passer-bys. They may not even be sitting alone, but they're still a lonesome person. I see it in the eyes. They're sad. They live in a different world. Maybe a world they used to know, or a world they've always wished for and never had, but they're lonesome and can't get out of it. They live by themselves even though they may be surrounded by people. Maybe they plug their ears with music to block out the noise in their own confused head. But their lonesome and they don't want to tell you. They do and they don't chose this life. Its not that they like being lonesome, but they just are. Maybe they've lived to long in bitterness and hate. Or maybe it was a life of pain and hurt, so they run from it all and hide within. Maybe their lost and can't find …
