|Looking out the window on a wet June day on the farm. . .|
Rain falls, soft rain at my window
Every butterfly has hurried away,
All the honey bees have called it a day,
|Lovelies from Lululiz, some purchased, some gifts. . .|
|Mother of Pearl buttons, laces, ribbons, vintage ticking|
and a gorgeous bookmark she made just for me. . .
Rain falls, soft rain making puddles.
For the children's feet the puddles are sweet,
And the skater-bug fleet find the small pools a treat
And the Columbine are bending their heads in the rain...
|Making room for the flowers to grow in our flower beds, but the Columbine has finished blooming!|
|Flower bed under the deck|
While the rain is falling there's a quietness about the world;
While the thunder is calling there's a quiet hush about the world.
|New orchard near our home in Washington State|
|Other Lovelies from Liz!|
A time to remember the beautiful things . . .
To look for tomorrow and your fondest dreams!
|More vintage bed ticking, ribbons, laces and buttons|
Rain falls, soft rain at my window....
. . . I will go outside where the sleepy rain blows,
Feel the wet on my face,
Feel the wet on my clothes...
And like the Columbine
I want to bow my head in the rain...
So many beautiful things in our world, some are made by man.
But the most beautiful are God's creations.
We make things that look like the beauties of the earth to bring inside
and decorate our homes. In this picture, even my weeds look beautiful to me. . .
I am so grateful for the many beautiful things the Lord has blessed
us with, beautiful earth and all it's wonders as well as the beautiful designs created by those with
wonder and awe of the world and a vision to bring flowers inside with fabric.
I am especially grateful for beautiful friends, sisters, sisters by choice, family,
and bloggy friends who all add so much beauty to my life!
Thank you, to all of you, for the joy you bring
through your own blogs and your comments on mine.
Lyrics to the song
"Soft Rain" ~ by Douglas and Janet Cox
I remember this song from when I was about 14. I was at a high school choir performance
and I fell in love with this song that reflected the feelings I have about the rain . . .
I have sung it many times during the rain and decided to share it with you
as I was taking these pictures on a rainy day in June.
Joyous Hearts to you on your Rainy Days!!
