The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Rain, rain, go away!!


~~Today is the 18th straight day of rain. Not just a little bit of rain every day, but constant steady rain. It might break for short bits but before long it's raining again. The clouds parted just a tiny bit this afternoon and I saw a glimpse of blue sky. I haven't seen that in so long. I've never seen anything like this in my life. Streets are rivers. Fields are marshes.
~~It finally happened today. The creek/river that runs through town came out of its banks and parts of my small town are flooding. I'm honestly surprised that it held out this long. That's a picture of it above and yes, that is red water. We have red, red dirt here in Oklahoma which makes red, red mud! It's normally a small creek, not a raging red river.
We're safe where we are on the high side of town, but not everybody is so lucky.
~~I didn't mean for this post to be gloomy. I just want to say that if it's sunny where you are, PLEASE run outside and enjoy it for me!

Unfortunately, it's all thunderstorms here today... but I'm going to try to be grateful that it isn't the 18th day to rain here! :-\
