Dark and Cloudy Days

Filed Under Inspiration | 32 comments

Barn Storm RS

Remember that when we come upon  Dark and Cloudy portions of our life it isn’t necessarily a bad thing…

We might just have to look closer  with real purpose to see the beauty… because whether  we take the time to “look” or not, it’s still there.

Please visit Susan and the  OutDoor Wednesday gang… there are some smashing sites to see.

Also remember Melissa at The Inspired Room where she has a great apple pie neighbor gift idea.

And Stop back tomorrow when we will have a wee bit of a celebration on EARLY Halloween!

TTFN~~  Claudia ♥ ♥

  1. I agree, sometimes we need to experience the dark and cloudy days to appreciate the mundane and even the glorious ones.  (The picture is beautiful!)
      We have had so many ups and downs this past week my brain is spinning.  Visiting our  children in two different states, dad falling again and having to surrender him to hospice care,  to the joyous occasion of blessing a  new grandbaby.
     Life is full of beauty and opposition…the two wisely counter each other. I wish I could control my high water table a bit better though it all.:)

    Your words are so true, and though your clouds are dark, I see a glimmer of light that made the scene so romantic!
    Happy Outdoors!

    I loved your dark cloud view.  Behind every dark cloud, there is a silver lining.  Sometimes it just takes the light longer to get through.  So happy  to have you visit and comment.

    IN every life there are cloudy days, but like somebody said behind evry cloud there is a silver lining. Beautiful picture.
    Have a nice day

  8. That photo speaks to a deep part of me. I’ve recently been learning to embrace pain as opposed to numbing it or running from it…

    Beautiful view!  Love the mountain in the background..

  11. Karen Cox says:

    My good friend Diane once gave me the poem about how necessary the black threads were as the gold.  In a sermon a pastor preached that God sees the front of our tapestry, we only see the threads.  Your photograph is lovely.  This time of year the skies seem to be more gray that blue.  Winter is just around the corner, and then comes the beautiful snow.

    I love stormy weather but not so much in my life experiences.

  17. Pat says:

    Hi Claudia
    That was such a big thunderhead!  Yes, dark clouds may linger but eventually the sun will shine.  It is always good to hold on to hope and prayer to get us through the dark days.
    Hugs,  Pat

  22. Karen says:

    My DH is a forecast meteorologist and is always looking at the sky.  He will say, look at that rotation or look at that anvil cloud.  He has taught me to appreciate all kinds of weather.

  23. Beautiful image, Claudia!

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!
