little miracles

Nature provided a visual extravaganza one afternoon this past week. Actually, it was Wednesday - Della's birthday! But this is a much shorter story than the previous one, I promise.

Piper and Moxie and Della and I had come in from working outdoors, and settled on the porch to take a little rest. I was looking out the window just as a mist began slowly falling, backlit by the sun. It was the very beginning of a sunshower!

As I watched, the rain very gradually became quite heavy, but it still fell slowly. Hard to describe...perhaps it was more "dense" than "heavy." Then it reversed, very gradually coming to a stop. All through the shower, the sun had never stopped shining.

It was such a gift to see the entire event from beginning to end. It felt like MY birthday!


This series of photographs was taken through the porch window over a total period of 1 minute and 33 seconds.
Amazing, no?


  1. Beautiful photos. I love the timeline of pictures to go along with your descriptions :)

  2. Wow, that's pretty wild! How neat to have gotten those shots.

  3. Amazing, and a week of miracles for you from the sound of it. :)

  4. Wow, great shots! Things like that are a real treat.

  5. A reminder of God's marvelous nature. And you were bless to get pictures of it. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Lovely. We had a rainshower like that the other day ... except it was through the dust. My husband and I were both surprised it actually rained at all.

  7. Talk about being in the right place at the right time! Amazing photos.
