Start Your Day with Coffee and a Prayer

A good night in Georgia

Just started raining here in Georgia. Temperature is in the 80s. Nice and windly there for a while. No thunder or lightening. Took some pictures of the sky and in one of them is my Crepe Myrtle. It has gotten really big and started to develop blooms for the summer. This is a white one which is my favorite.

Well the rain has stopped. It took forever to upload my pics.

When I was a kid I loved the wind, thunder, and lightening. A storm made me feel so good. I have never been in a hurricane or a tornado and I have never been struck by lightening. I have never been afraid of storms. When I lived at home I would walk outside under the carport and just close my eyes and feel the wind. I have never been in a flood either but my house is in a flood plain. It was built before the law went into effect. I did wake up off and on one night when the creek in the back was overflowing. I kept looking out the window to make sure it never came to the house. I do not know what I could have done but I was watching it nonetheless. I think energy is built up when a storm starts. That energy must make me feel regenerated. I don't know. Any comments. Have a good evening.


  1. It may be cloudy but the crepe myrtles sure do look beautiful and they like the rain...

  2. I love a good storm, you are right it is energizing. My husband and I will go out on the patio and watch storms. Unless we start getting the really high wind gust which seem to always be aimed at the patio.

    The crepe myrtles are so pretty.
