Dark and Cloudy Days

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.:) 

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. Beautiful!!!  And your caption…your thoughts below the lovely photo is just soooooooooo perfect.

  6. Hi Claudia, What a beautiful picture… My husband and I where out to lunch Saturday and from our table we ate and watched the clouds…
    If you don’t mind I may use your boob fairy in my Pink Saturday Post….

  7. Claudia, your photo for Outdoor Wednesday is so pretty but, I scanned down & read the post below it… Information Please OH MY GOODNESS HOW SWEET WAS THAT!  Thanks for sharing.

  8. 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.

  9. Good morning Claudia, I love this cloud formation in this shot..I take many pictures of sunrises and sunsets.. a very meaningful message here.Thanks for sharing…
    Have a great day…. hugs,  Baba

  10. Hi Claudia,
    Thanks for stopping by.  I love that stormy picture with that great barn and words of widom.  You made my day.  🙂

  11. 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

  12. Not only are you an excellent photographer, your thoughts and words give us something to think about as well!

  13. Hi,
    Stunning picture of the old barn before the storm.  I can see the clouds just broiling and churning!  I would be making a dash for the barn door about now! 🙂 Thanks for this Outdoor Wednesday post and thank you for stopping by!


  14. 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.

  15. It is amazing how the weather can mimic our lives and emotions.  Dark and stormy, bright and sunny, etc.

    Thank you for sharing the photo and your wisdom with us!

  17. Totally loved your party!  Quite creative, cute, yet spooky and fun!  🙂
