We had another weird-weather day. The only thing we didn't get was snow. The forecast was for partly cloudy skies, but we started the day off with rain, then clearing with strong winds, then a brief but violent thunderstorm, followed by more clearing. Towards dinnertime it started raining again, but the sun was shining brilliantly. I ran to grab my camera to try and capture this phenomenon but when I got outside the rain had stopped, and instead there was a 'sign' from heaven that reminded me of a promise made long ago.
After dinner I walked over to our lilac 'woods' (there's at least an acre of them) to capture them before they're gone again. The air was heavy with their fragrance - surely heaven must smell like this!
