You just don't appreciate the Sunshine until you have the rain that we have had. Dark and gloomy days just brings the spirit down, but when the sun pops its head out, it just makes you feel great! When you get down on rainny days I always wonder how Noah made it 40 days and 40 nights. How much grumbling he got from his family and the animals (smile). It just goes to show you we need the rain for spring flowers. I use to love the song the "April Showers". I love the old songs.
Through April Showers may come your way
They bring the flowers that bloom in may
So if its raining, have no regrets
Because it isn't raining rain, you know, its raining violets.
So when you see clouds upon a hill
There soon will be crowds of daffidols
So keep on looking for a Blue Bird and
Listening for his songs
When ever April showers come along.
I realize the its January and not April but we have needed water...And God said He would supply all of our needs. I am trying to think of all the drops that fell are "Pennies from Heaven" (another old song). Another song I like to sing to pick up my spirits is the "Red Red Robin". We use to sing a lot of these songs in Choir in high school, Ms Volkman loved them and she would really get to swinging to them...she introduced us to these beautiful songs in the 60's when most of us want to hear Elvis, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, etc....... She gave us a liking for all kinds of music and for that I really appreciate her. We sung for one of our programs "One God". Can you imagine children getting to sing that in schools now! Some of the people would choke! Ha Ha Ha! Thank you Lord for your many blessings of memories and the ability to remember them, for as long as we can.
