Why a Black Cloud?

I will explain the "black cloud". My mother's family from time to time would say that if anything bad that could happen would happen to them and called it the black cloud. I find this to be true in my life almost on a daily basis. Just like a friend my black cloud is present everyday. Let me make this clear...I talk about my black cloud in an entirely jokingly way. I laugh about most things, even when they are bad....it's all going to be alright. My faith is such that the Lord will provide and even if I don't know how in the world we are going to fix whatever has happened, he knows. So please any of my bad things that I mention, know that I am laughing and remaining faithful while I am typing! And please LAUGH because I am!

He that is afraid of bad luck will never know good" -RussianProverb

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope

Lyrics, Love, Train

Jason and I have a totally different view on songs...he listens to the music, I listen to the words. wonder if that is a gender thing?
Some of my favorites are by Train and Pat Monahan:
Marry Me: "Forever will never be long enough for me to feel like I have had long enough with you"
                  "together will never be close enough for me to feel like I am close enough to you"
If its Love: "I love you from your toes to your face"
Soul Sister: " Your sweet moonbeam the smell of you in every dream I dream"
Her Eyes: "Her eyes, that's where hope lies. That's where the blue skies meet the sunrise.Her eyes that's  where I go when I go home."

I could go on and on...with the lyrics. Words touch me, say things that I wish I could have said on my own...but someone beat me to it. I hear the words and think about how I love Jason. I am so lucky to have found someone like him. I have said before that it is funny how God puts people in our lives...when we least expect them. Jason was unexpected...by me..I know God had a part in it  and a plan. Sometimes we have to be still and listen to Him and know that He knows all. 

I am looking forward to planning our next date night and our next quick trip. Sometimes our dates are a special meal cooked at home. Like some Italian dish we have never had before, served on matching plates and place mats (its the small things) with a candle...sometime with Madison. :)  Another time it was Mexican complete with appetizers, candles, place mats and cloth napkins. Sometimes we get a coupon and spring for a night out. We are lucky to have grandparents close by that are more than willing to keep Madison for a couple of hours! We took at weekend trip to Gatllinburg back in February to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We stayed in the same cabin we stayed in for our honeymoon.

Tonight/morning, I am missing my husband (working tonight), but am thankful for him, the person he is and the person I am because of him.
