C is for Cloud


Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining

That would be good to put on my desktop to remember the sun is always shining somewhere. Take care.

After all the rain (and rain clouds) recently here in Spain, we do love the sun!

XOXO Lola:)

PS Many thanks for continuing such a great meme.

Lovely, Mrs. Matlock. Just recently, I did some black and white cloud photos and they were tremendous. Billowy and beautiful.

I'd actually LOVE to see some clouds! (A little rain would even be great!) I'm a little tired of all the sun we've been having! ;)

Cathy Kennedy said...

I love clouds! I like to lay in the yard to see what I can find hidden in the clouds, like when I was a kid.

Good 'C' word! =D

Nezzy said...

Great quote! It reminds me of a fishin' trip we took our students on. It was a cold, cloudy spring day and I had a Down Syndrome boy in the paddle boat with me who said, "the sun is shinnin'." I'm like, Jesse there is no sun today in which he so wisely answered...." yes, yes Mrs. Nezzy the sun is shinnin'...it's just hiding behind the clouds!" Outta the mouths of babes! :o)

God bless and my the sun brightly shine on your day sweetie!

I love looking at clouds. They can be very soothing...if they are the lazily floating along kind. ;)

I love that picture & I love the clouds.... as long as they don't always cover up the sun:-)

Cool picture and quote!

Gattina said...

Why can't the clouds be over the sun ? Last time I took the plane I thought I was driving over snow !

Su-sieee! Mac said...

For me, it's knowing the stars are out there even though it's day.

Longfellow always gets it right, a poet for hope and guidance, don't you find? I might join in with your alphabets sometime if that's alright? :)

I do love to bask directly in the sunny warmth of some sunshine...but a little fluffy clouds passing by cools the temps a bit and offers a little shade... What a great quote!

Blessings & Aloha!
