Fire and Water

I love…

the smell

…of candle wax

in the evening.

 

Constant rain crashing from black skies has kept me indoors for the last two days.  The stream adjacent to my garden burst its banks yesterday and flooded the field.  I’ve watched anxiously as water levels rose higher and higher getting dangerously close.  My home has been flooded twice in the past so I know the full horror and helplessness  of that experience.  My stress levels have been rising along with the water.

Tonight it was a comfort to light candles in a home that has survived another day.  And to be grateful that I am still warm and dry in my sanctuary.
