Here we are, almost into the middle of December and just now the weather has gotten cold. That’s ok. It makes winter even shorter, at least in my head.
Here are some images before the weather turned at Pertle Springs. Such blue skies and water.
Then we have the culprit that brought in the cold. A thunder storm in December! Brief, but successful.

We recently took a road trip to the east coast of the USA. We had a great time with family and friends. The weather was perfect. I breathed in salty air and stuck my toes in the ocean. Ahhhhh.
Well, on the way home to The Middle, Missouri to be precise, we came across these clouds to the north of us. I love to see the skies in the mid-west. They are much like the ocean I left behind. Always changing color and always leaving room for my vast imagination.
Since we moved to the mid-west I never get tired of looking at the vastness of the sky. I know the sky can be seen almost anywhere but when you spend years of marveling at the ocean, as I did, and you move to where there is no ocean, the sky becomes your ocean. It is amazing.
Today I was struck with the clear quality and the deep blue…….
“Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.” Psalm 36:5
Enjoy! And USA (states that do this) don’t forget to fall back one hour when you go to bed tonight! 😀
