Stormy weather in Southern California can be beautiful. I had to pick up a few things at the store and was fortunate to get some shots of these clouds. I love the contrast of stormy clouds and palm trees.
It was a perfect morning to light all the candles on the coffee table as I did my morning devotions and reading. I love that the rain washed all the dust off the trees by the balcony and gave my plants a good drink.
I read this morning in Psalm that the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving is pleasing to the Lord. So my sacrifice of thanksgiving is for the rain, the beautiful sky and the soft light of the candles. What a good way to start the day.
