Hurricane Gonzalo swept through Anguilla a few weeks ago downing power lines and trees. There is now very little evidence that we had a storm. Communities, Businesses and Government worked together and did a fabulous job of restoring and repairing the island. Kudos to Anglec and other service providers who worked tirelessly to restore electricity, cable and Internet to the island.
Since then, Anguilla has received lots of rain and a couple of thunder storms. One thunder clap truly startled me out of my sleep.
Nature then is both majestic and beautiful and sometimes scary too! I love the way though that the earth renews after a storm. God’s glory is always apparent. Trees which I thought were gone forever are coming back and the grass….we cut it, it rains, it grows back…you get the idea.
These beautiful yellow rain flowers remind me that beauty often comes after the storm. Nature is beauty and beauty is nature.
Big Up your graciousness Shellecia, I had similar thoughts while on Anguilla right after this hurricane. It was amazing seeing the stars even more without the very slight human interference of streetlights. I was wondering about all those yellow flowers in the fields. After the rains, the island was so beautiful, so yes it didn’t take long at all for nature and man to recover. And we experienced a lovely sunset together. I am bless ed to hold it in my fond memories.
Hi Brenda! Great to hear from you. Yes I will also hold that sunset and the stories you shared in fond memory. You are right, the stars were also beautiful. I hope that as you pursue new paths and a new journey that you will encounter beauty at every turn. Have a great weekend!
