Summer Storms - Skywatch Friday

 What's summer without afternoon thunderstorms? You know, the ones that made you nervous as a kid (as it does my 6 year old daughter). Now I look forward to the tranquility that they bring, not to mention the heat relief and rain, especially now that's its so hot and dry in our area this summer.

We had one such storm this week that resulted in some beautiful skies...

God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. (Genesis 1:8, NIV)

I love the rainbow! I haven't seen one in awhile, even though we've had lots of rain. I hope you get some more showers. Oh, and I also enjoy seeing flowers and such with the skies. Nice shots!

The Bible verse was great in there, too.

I love the flowers silhouetted against the sky. I would love it even more if the storms would dump more rain on my garden.
