Oklahoma Skies...

Were my welcome home from my exhausting trip.

I had driven from Tunica, Mississippi, all day in dreary, mist, rainy and gloomy skies. About the time that I start an argument between me and God regarding whether or not I'm gonna survive another hour until I get to Tulsa...


God starts answering.







He will not take you to it if He cannot bring you through it...






He will not give you more than you can handle.







I just wish sometimes that He didn't trust me so much.








Thank you for these beautiful Oklahoma skies and for the sunshine breaking through and welcoming me home.

Pretty pictures and I so agree sometimes words aren't needed. I hope you have rested from you long quick trip. Hope your friend is doing good too.

Ditto, what darsden said!
I hope you are feeling better. Winter is almost over, hang in there!

Just so y'all know... I hit enter instead of shift, so some of you got just the photos...

I'm almost, but not quite, back to normal.

Whatever that is for me.

So true!
I feel the same, trusting me too much lately.
Welcome home!!!

HUMMMMM whacha trying to say about Mississippi ....LOL yes, it has been that way here for a while. But, the blue skies are peeking out.

See even God knows how much you can be trusted to get a job done. Wow!

Maybe he doesn't give us more than we can handle but we sure do get ourselves in over our heads sometimes.

Glad the beautiful clouds keep you awake enough to have that conversation with God. Glad you made it home.
I got text with the great photos so you look pretty "back to normal" to me.

Helen, you are just trying to make me homesick...and it's working!
Beautiful pictures. People that have never been to Oklahoma have no idea how beautiful it is. The skies, rolling hills, flowers and trees, the streams and lakes, sunsets, and most of all the people!
