Thankful Thursday I

This is my first time to join Thankful Thursday. The idea behind the group is to be thankful once a week and since I do it here as often as I can, why not join them?

A few weeks back I found TT from Laurie. But, this May, TT is hosted by Lynn.

This week's challenge is to share some of your pictures of nature that inspire you to worship.

The Virgin Islands have been known to be stricken by hurricanes and the recent one like Omar, was indeed a disaster that the island can't really escape from. But I am thankful that we have withstood it and that such of nature's blows have shaped the island to its beauty.

As an old saying goes, diamonds shimmer after polishing.

So here goes 5 photos that I found over at flickr that I would love to share with you all. I hope you don't mind that they are not my originals. Just visit the links of those who made them and tell them I said hi (if you have a flickr account)

Virgin Islands Rainbow by meaganmarchant

"I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life." - Genesis 9:13-15

And I would also like to add a badge for the group. I hope I get to join every week! For those who would like to participate, feel free to grab this badge:
