Yes, I think we are nearing the end of the hermitage pictures. But just one or two more.
These images came to me in late spring and summer is now very ripe. Today’s hot, dry weather seems to be scorning…
A most unusual thing just happened. Less than 90 minutes ago, I was typing the above words when suddenly an intense wind started blowing, rattling my blinds ferociously. Though thunderstorms had been predicted, they have often bypassed us this summer and it had been sunny this evening at the times they were predicted.
When this occurred, however, I decided that perhaps I should get offline and secure the sliding doors. Within minutes, huge rain drops were pelting the panes and a hearty thunder rumbled its approval. The grass here has long been brown and crunchy and I’ve been keeping the garden alive while praying for rain.
Now, shortly before midnight, the earth is dancing with joy. At 10 PM, the temperature was 90 degrees. It dropped to 73. I too shall dance.
And the particularly fun part about it all is that the hermitage image I had chosen tonight before this transpired was the following:
…an image I had loved because it appeared to me that, with its branches swung wide, this plant was trying to dance its way back to life this spring.
Yes, let us dance, let us dance, let us dance!
(And praise our God for the gift of rain, the gift of life.)
