Breaking out in song

The sunsets this past week have really been beautiful.  They inspire me to walk out into God’s great cathedral and praise Him for His goodness.  Occasionally an old song that I didn’t even remember that I knew, will well up.  The other night, I found myself singing this old Disney song, “Johnny Appleseed (The Lord is Good to Me)”.  Whether it was out loud, or just in my head, I’m not sure, but it described well my feelings at the time.

Oh, the Lord’s been good to me.
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need:
The sun, the rain and the appleseed;
Oh, the Lord’s been good to me.
~ Kim Gannon and Walter Kent

Storm clouds

We have had round after round of storm clouds passing through this spring.  They make for some interesting colors and patterns in the afternoon sky.
