Company and a Couple of Bows

Niki and Rob will be here tomorrow. I am very excited and wonder if I will sleep tonight. I think I will, since I am SO tired. Busy, busy busy...I am thrilled to have a day off tomorrow. Sweetheart goes back to work on Monday and that will be a break too. He is a work horse that guy, and likes me to work along with him!!!
He painted the bathroom today. It is a beautiful lavender color. Not as bright as the first picture appears, and not as muted as the second...think, in between....We had an interesting storm come through this evening. It was called a bow arch.
Look at that curve...lots of lightening and wind. We missed out on hail and damaging winds, but it was all around us. The skies were amazing....
The pictures do not do it justice, but it did get very dark for a while.
Then......
He did it. God put His bow in the sky...2 of them actually, right next to each other. It was breathtaking! The colors were so sharp, you could see each one with clarity.
It makes you think. What an awesome God we have. He is still reminding us of a promise He made thousands of years ago.....

Your bathroom is lovely! I just really like that color. Your table is gorgeous, too. I have a feeling you like purple like I do. :o) What a storm! We had one like that this afternoon, too, and it's still raining. Yes, God is truly awesome!

God bless you ~ Julie

We keep getting pounded by these storms also....we haven't even had much of a summer. Our lakes are at least 20 ft. over flood stage. Even through it though, God still lets the sunshine in the evenings so we have AMAZING sunsets and have time to sit on the porch.

Love the lavender bathroom! I had no idea what a bow arch storm was, thanks for the explanation. Pretty amazing. God is so good to remind us of His love in such amazing ways.

Hi Sweetheart. I am not ignoring your sweet invitation. Dove had surgery today and days are full. I have no plan and an at a strange place. So much stress. I have taken a few small steps here and there. Asked for Gods help in overcoming the strongholds. So distracted and eating stress right now sorta out of control with it. I am so sorry if I am letting you down I now I am myself.

Your new bathroom colour looks lovely.
I tried to photograph a double rainbow in NZ when I was there in April. Your pic is much clearer than mine.
