~Stormy Weather.....~

Oh my goodness! What a storm--what a sky! These colors are so beautifully blended, one color highlighting the next. You may have guessed by now that I am an avid sky watcher. We have just recently moved to a home situated on top of a hill in Iowa with a panoramic view of the sky and surrounding farmlands and prairie. On a clear day, the neighbors say that one can see for 10 miles in every direction! Oh how I love this view unencumbered by fences and walls...just wide open. Robert Frost, in his poem, " Mending Wall" expresses disdain for walls between people, and ponders the words of his neighbor, "Good fences make good neighbors." I was thinking about this poem this morning, then I turned to read my favorite blogs. As I was reading, I thought that Robert Frost, if he had lived today, would be shocked to find that many of these walls have eroded, fallen down, or never even existed. I love the way that we can share our lives with each other, without hiding behind a facade. If one is hurting, we pray for them. When another is joyful, we rejoice with them. Every accomplishment by one of us, holds a sense of shared pride for all. We encourage each other, care for each other, and respect each other. I am so grateful for all of you this day. What a blessing you are to me!


  1. What a loving sweet post ... we help one another in maybe a small or simple way ... we laugh, we cry, we share, we learn ... TTFN ~ Marydon

  3. you are the blessing Sharon!! always so upbeat and positive even in the midst of troubling times (like recently moving) and always encouraging words to people! you truly are a wonderful gift the Lord gave me with our friendship

    I love the analogy with the fences; that is so true with us here online; we might never meet in person, but we are still friends and still hold each other near and dear!

    love the picture of the clouds with the storm!
