Shades of Gray

Rick took this picture on Sunday afternoon from our friends dining room. He was looking out at their potting shed through heavy rain. Believe it or not, the camera was not on a black and white setting, but simply captured what our world really looked like. The substantial amount of rainfall left lots of melting water with nowhere to go, and I thank God that we live on high ground, and our spring thaw runs down into the valley instead of into our basement.

Spring, however, appears to be on hold for awhile, as colder temperatures have returned, changing rain back to snow. No, I'm not complaining, I chose this life in Manitoba, and the blessings I receive here and beyond counting.

Through ice, snow, slippery roads and gray dismal skies, I will yet proclaim, My God reigns!

"Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns." Revelation 19:6
