Hello, Dear Ones! Well, we are under a thunderstorm warning, the skies are dark, the thunder is booming and we're waiting for the rain to start. I do kinda like a good little thunderstorm. This afternoon we saw the most beautiful lightning bolt in the sky and it was not even raining!
I took this snap on Friday afternoon. I just loved the sun shining through the shears and it made me happy. I hope my snap will make you happy too!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Let The Sunshine In

When you are unhappy,
the devil wears a grin

But oh, he starts to running

when the light comes pouring in

I know he'll be unhappy

'Cause I'll never wear a frown

Maybe if we keep on smiling

He'll get tired of hanging 'round. 

If I forget to say my prayers
the devil wears a grin.

But he feels so awful awful

when he sees me on my knees

So if you're full of trouble

and you never seem to win,

Just open up your heart and let the sun shine in.

So let the sun shine in

face it with a grin.

Smilers never lose

and frowners never win.

So le the sun shine in

face it with a grin

Open up your heart and let the sun shine in. 

~ sung by little children in Sunday School and me!


  1. Let The Sunshine In, haven't heard that song in years. Perfect for your Thunderstorm. I have seen striking lightning bolts in Phoenix many times during our monsoons. Keep dry and safe, Kathleen in Az

    1. Hi Kathleen! Don't you just love that sweet little song! God has made so many beautiful sights for us, hasn't he? Even lightning bolts! Hope you're having a good weekend.
      Be a sweetie,
      Shelia ;)

  2. You always make me happy. Love it when you have a new post up!!! Sally

  3. I love thunderstorms. Always have. Wish we'd get a good rain so my flowers would stop pouting!

    1. I had a hard time commenting again. I have to go through a lot of security stuff. Frustrating.

  5. I love that Stuart Hamblen song. I grew up singing that. Thanks for the reminder. I love your posts. Send some of that rain down here in Texas. :-) Nelda

    1. Hi Nelda! I'm so sorry it's so hard for you to comment on my blog. I just can't figure out why that happens. But I'm thrilled you popped in to see me. Thanks for coming by and hope all is good in your world.
      Be a sweetie,
      Shelia ;)

  6. I haven't heard that song for goodness knows how long, sigh. A lovely sunny picture to go with it.


  7. Hi Shelia, thank you for sharing that photo and the song with us. I hope the thunderstorm was to your liking.
    Take care,

  8. Lovely pot! I hope that the thunder has passed and that the sunshine is out again! xx

  9. I love a good thunderstorm too, unfortunately in my neck of the woods it also means a power outage. The power grid is so outdated around me, we lose power at least once a month.

  10. Love a good storm - inherited that from my sweet Momma.

    Your little container is so cute, and sunshine is a wonderful thing.

    God bless. Hugs.

  11. Shelia,
    LOVE the sunshine snapshot, dear friend!!!
    Thank you for sharing this Note Song!!!
    I loved teaching it to my Sunday School Class Students many years ago!!!

  12. Hope you batten down the hatches and have no damage. I heard there was quite a bit in the East! Stay dry!

  13. Dry as a bone here after nothing BUT rain earlier in the summer. We too had a lightning show a week back-- I too enjoy a good SAFE storm.

  14. Pouring rain here all day long, but like you, I think it's kind of cozy.

    "Let the Sunshine In" is what I would sing to my kindergarten students everyday — while playing the autoharp! Such a stage show!

  15. Hi Shelia! The sun shining in your house is beautiful. Sunshine just makes you feel happier...doesn't it?

    I just returned from the beautiful state of New York. Visited my friend in Fairport for 4 days. We drove over to Aurora, NY and had lunch at Pumpkin Hill. Are you anywhere near that? I would highly recommend it. We had a delicious lunch overlooking the grapevines and a lake. :)

  16. Yes it does Sheila! I'm glad your day got better!

  17. it makes day seem so much better when the sun shines! We're passing along the rest of our heatwave to you guys Stay cool!

  18. Hi Shelia, Just back to blogging from my time away and stopping by this wonderful sunny post is the perfect way to begin a new week. Love your sweet covered rooster dish. I love a good thunderstorm too. So cozy to be inside. You captured a special pic. Have a great new week.
    Blessings, cm

  19. Great picture, Shelia! I always love to seen sunlight through shears -- such a pretty, diffused light. Storms are forecast for here, too, off and on this week. Goodness knows, we can use the rain, but we're not as dry here as other places in the nation. I think most everyone will be glad to see fall this year; what do you think? :)

    Thanks so much for your visits, Shelia; I really appreciate my faithful blogging friends like you!!

    Warm hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  20. I missed this post... how did that happen, lol! Sweet little piece! Yep, made me smile, too! :) ~Rhonda


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
