Monday Memories—Cloud Cover

Photobucket
thank you Google images

One day last week I saw a scene like the one above, and it reminded me of a time when Cali was about three and we saw something similar together. I thought the display was beautiful enough, but was too busy thinking about a hundred things that needed to be done to appreciate it. However, Cali just stared and stared at it and then quietly said, “I wish the cloud would move so I could see Him.”

I seldom see a brilliant shining cloud now without thinking of what she said.

So sweet and pure. Brought back memories of my childhood. I used to lay on my back on the lawn and look at the beautiful clouds and tried to find Jesus Christ standing on one of them. You have been blessed with your righteous, choice children.

This reminds me of jumping on the trampoline with Ande (or maybe Ty) and trying to guess which cloud Heavenly Father was on.

I'm having issues with the posting of my comments. Can you tell?

I love when I see clouds like that and now I'm sure I'll remember Cali saying that too.

Cali said...

Mom,

Thanks for reminding me I have a sweet side. Today I felt like I was being pretty rotton... telling you I didn't like your shoes and all.

I love you. Thank you for being MY perfect mom.
Cali

Kim Sue said...

well, I now will never see a sight like this without pausing and thinking that he's there.

Marie said...

Now that was a beautiful moment.

I wonder what new gems you'll hear from the next generation of Payne children?

Rebecca said...

And I love what Marie said about the next generation of Payne children! You have so much to look forward to.
