To Love Many Things

Vincent van Gogh made the statement:

"But I always think that the best way to know  God is to love many things."

Our extremes in weather is a case in point. 
The Funny Bunnies were staying with me for a few hours. Funny Bunny #1 is terrified of thunderstorms and lightning. Funny Bunny #2 just copies her every move.
Without a moment's notice, the blue sky turned black and ferocious, clouds zipped across the sky on roller skates, faint booms became deafeningly louder and louder.

Then the THUNDER and LIGHTNING STRUCK. Its force was so strong it split our neighbor's tree in half.

Fortunately we only lost a few plants and many heavy items blew over.

FB#1 was about to fall apart. Then I thought of Vincent's quote: to love many things. And that includes the uncontrollable, earth shaking, tree shattering storms we have been experiencing.

Sometimes a Grammy just has to do what she has to do: DISTRACT!

We decided to PAINT THE STORM

Out to our Imagination Station Art Studio in the Garage.

The garage door was half open (full open and we would probably have been sucked out like Dorothy and Toto)
Artists need to study their subject up close.They need to be observant.

"That was a BIG noise, Grammy. You sure we are okay?"

Distraction and Concentration and everything looks brighter.

See that storm wasn't so bad after all.
