Waking Up To A Rainy Morning.

Early this morning, I was awoken by the sound of heavy downpour. I took a look at the clock and it showed 3.30 am. I went back to sleep and when I woke up again, it was still raining. Even though we couldn't go for our morning walk, we looked forward to a breakfast date with one of our friends. The drizzling didn't stop us from meeting up for breakfast.

Below are some photos for joining Skywatch Friday meme. Photos #1 - #5 were taken one early morning at about 7.10 am in January 2016.

All who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise,

like a man who builds his house on solid rock.

Though the rain comes in torrents, and the floods rise

and the storm winds beat against his house,

it won't collapse, for it is built on rock.

(Matthew 7:24-25, The Living Bible-TLB)
