The sunny morning turned into a rainy afternoon. I kept looking out the window at the blooming trees in the backyard to find encouragement. Many times, it's the small things that keep me going in a positive direction. True joy comes from within, not our surroundings but it sure helps when you let the simple things encourage that joy.
As the rain cleared, the sun was setting. I grabbed my brother and bolted to the car. The sky was magnificent. I smiled big and thanked God for the beautiful gift the whole time as I took photos on the side of the road. The sunset was a much needed sight to end the weekend.
