Thursday SHINE....

Happy Thursday, girls! Yes, this is a mid-day post. :)

I just have something to share really quick. Y'all are all like hundreds of my BEST girl friends. So, of course, I have to share this with you. Right now! ;)

Okay, so I was driving home this afternoon. It was rainy. It was dreary. It was yucky.

If you know me, you know that I do not do well with rainy days. I live for sunshine. I live for blue skies. It's just how I am.

Back to the story...

I was feeling a little blue. I was talking to the Lord. Spilling my heart about some stuff. Ya know, that kind of talkin'. :)

Suddenly, out of the corner of my eye I see a big bright thing in the sky!

It has been so long since I have seen the sun, I hardly recognized it's beautiful glow!

I looked to my left and there was an opening in the clouds. The sun was glaring through and a remnant of the most blue sky that I have ever witnessed was peeking through.

I choked on my tears. I could not believe that the Lord was showing me His Love...right then and right there. On the Interstate. Heading home.

Words cannot express how I felt.

If that were not enough, I then saw a big fat colorful rainbow in the sky.

It was God, again.

He really wanted to get my attention. Oh, and He got it.

I grabbed my camera and took a quick picture. I never wanted to forget that moment.

I never will.

He's always with us, girls. Even on the dreariest of days. He's just waiting to be found.

Are we looking?

i love you,

I love it, Jill. God was showing off just for you. No matter how many other people saw it, at that moment, it was just for you. Praise God for all of his blessings. Messy, rainy, dreary but wonderful. Without water we would perish and without rain even the great Missississippi gets very low in its banks. So low that some boats can't continue downstream when it gets real low. So, let the rain come down; let the praise go up, let the rain come down; let the praise go up! Glory to God who cares if one of his "little ones" has a "dreary, blue day" and so much that he sends the sunshine AND the rainbow, too. I love it and I love you. Gloria Hudgins
