Spring Storms

We are beginning to have the normal spring Texas weather - gorgeous a few days and then a storm front rolls through, dumps rain and hail and moves out quickly.
Here on Buhlaland - a few personal storms also - we are planning on rough weather moving out quickly but the situation is not in our control. Didn't want you to think we'd abandoned our blogosphere friends and family - a pneumonia storm hit and has things more than a little unsettled.
We know it will work out OK -
our lives don't stink but we do find Max Lucado's saying both amusing and appropriate!

"Real courage embraces the twin realities of current difficulty and ultimate triumph.Yes, life stinks. But it won’t forever. As one of myfriends likes to say, 'Everything will work out in the end. If it’s not working out, it’s not the end.' "

On Buhlaland - it is NOT the end. We are working through some unsettled weather with prayer and supplication. Best part - we know the ultimate end and it is good.

LindaSue & Skip, that picture is beautiful, I especially like pictures like that, of sunshine and the dark clouds in the background, or vice -versa, so very very much like our life here on earth! Your analogy and picture are perfect, and I keep you both in my prayers!Love that saying by Max Lucado.

I've seen many a sky that looked like that growing up in Texas. I'm sorry about your difficult times but I'm so glad that you know HIM>

Praying that the Lord will see you through this storm!

Hey Linda Sue & Skip - Prayers are going up right now from my part of Texas for you guys as you are dealing with this challenge. I am looking at the magnificence of those clouds and I see God in there. A God who is so powerful and awesome. Beautiful.

I do love that saying from your friend. And just as physical storms pass, so "this, too, shall pass". God bless you both.

Ugh, pneumonia is rough on regular terms, can't imagine it when the whole breathing apparatus is already challenged. I know you will but gatta say it any who, take care.

Glad to hear your lives don't stink.

You're tucked into prayer; be careful and take good care of yourselves. The photo is lovely.

Ooooh -that picture looks scary! But I love watching a storm move through like that.
Unlike life storms... when it's hard to see the end of it... I'm praying all is well in your corner of the world, dear friend!
