Rain and God

I love the rain. We live in the desert, so rain isn't something I take for granted.

What do I like most about the rain? I see it as a gift from God. Though I know it's not just for me, I consider it a washing, blessing time from Him, and I always feel refreshed. It's a cleansing time, and He knows the timing of that, just when I need it most. One of my favorite songs..."Let it rain, rain, rain, rain." I sing it anytime I see the faintest whisper of what might be a rain cloud.

Thanks, Lord.

I'll take some of that rain now. It would be really good timing, a rain gift.

Me too, Janie. I think rain is a gift too, even though I'm not in a desert. I guess I see it as a chance to stay in, read, rest, and cleanse my soul of all the rush, rush, rush of an average day.

Very nice post.

We are getting a slight sprinkle and I'm thankful for however slight the rain because especially in Texas, it's certainly a gift from HIM.

Vodka Mom - I, too, see you as a gift from God! Love ya!

Chatelaine - you and I always seem to be on the same page...

Midlife - girl. You know it.

In an area of the State where an average of 50 inches of rain descend from the heavens each year, moisture is still manna from above.
