 Last night a storm moved in at Sunset.
 I looked for a rainbow. . . didn't find it.

We work so hard trying to get thing we want that we miss the fact that it is our inner world that stands between us and happiness. Iyanla Vanzant

Moon, Sunrise, Clouds and Preview of Lisa Wingate's new book The Story Keeper

 Moon high overhead this morning.
36 percent full

 Little bit of Sunrise peeking around clouds.

I finished reading an extraordinary book by author Lisa Wingate. Her latest book is The Story Keeper.

There are two stories within this book. The main character, Jen, who is an editor found a story that will haunt her and yet teach her about her own family. She has a tendency to run away from them and her childhood. The people she comes in contact with, relative to the book, and in addition to her own family will bring her to a place where she gains what she had lost. . .her heart. She begins to see everything relative to her life from a new perspective. 

There is a reason for everything, but we don’t always, and sometimes never, see it.  The lesson will be repeated until we get it right.  With this story, in the end, every one wins. This book as a bit of mystery, history, principles and genealogy. Quite a mixture for an interesting, family novel.

She offers a preview on her website:


Sometimes you just have to Bow your Head, say a Prayer, and Weather the Storm.

Storm Clouds

 Clouds are building. . .
 . . . and building.
I can hear the thunder.

Someday everything will all make perfect sense. So for now, Laugh at the confusion, Smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything Happens for a Reason.

Dark Clouds, Red Sky, Sunrise, Ibis and Duck Breakfast Club

 Dark clouds to the north.
 East. . .Red Sky in the Morning (Sailor's Warning).
 The whole sky lit up bright red.
 You can see dark clouds just to the south of the red sky.

Here they come. . .yep one more around the corner.
 Three Ducks.
