I’ve loved storms and clouds since childhood. I think my curiosity and sense of adventure kicked in when storms came. Perhaps I still have some of that, but in the last twenty years or more they have become even more special to me. During that time, I did some studies on the Bible about the… Read More Day 222- Thankful for clouds (photos)
Friday morning dawned cloudy with the last bit of the night’s rainfall. These are such good mornings to sleep in, but we couldn’t sleep too late because we needed to check out of our hotel and get home. The sun started to come out by the time we left.

I wish I could say that we saw the majestic snow-capped mountains in the distance and describe the lush colors that surrounded us, but that’s just not the case! Northeast Colorado is a high-altitude plain, and when the end of November comes, there isn’t… Read More Finding God
