Skywatch Friday: Grace Spot



There is no way to know how long
an opening through the clouds will last.

The important thing is trusting that there will always be
a grace spot
between life's storms.


Bask in the light when you have found it



...or it has found you.

  11. The tree in the bottom photo is stunning in its starkness. I looked at it more closely and noted the details, including the top of the tree in the background. Then I noticed the clouds ~ so many beautiful elements.

  25. You know Laura, I am always looking up at the sky, even while driving. I notice the sun covered and uncovered by clouds, and I feel a great sense of being held by that sun, if only for a few moments.

    It's the perfect metaphor for life, cloudy, then sunny, then cloudy again. It's one think to understand this intellectually vs. spiritually.

    Thank you.

  26. beautiful images and words, Laura...

    it can be dark and raining without a glimmer to be found... and then you take off into the sky on an airplane and within moments it is blue skies all around you... the light is always shining, whether we can see it or not...

    hugs :)
