oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

storms that didn’t come

SAMSUNG

What I see is a brilliant sky. What I remember is this is all that became of some ominous looking clouds. What I think is that sometimes we spend so much time preparing for the worst that we don’t take the time to enjoy what is actually in front of us.

.

If you spend your whole life

waiting for the storm,

you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.

    • Thanks Patricia. That was taken at my aunt and uncle’s house before she died. My uncle was finishing up some work outside, my aunt was inside cooking, and I was running around taking pictures with my phone before the storm. Of course, it never did storm. But these pictures of that sky have preserved a memory for me of that moment, a bit of time that might have otherwise melted into the well of my memories of those Bible study nights. So I am more than grateful for that storm that didn’t come.
