There is something so wonderful and relaxing about the sound of raindrops pouring down. The sound that drowns out everything else around. That was the sound yesterday. it was wonderful, beautiful, and so needed. The drought here in Colorado has been overwhelming. The plants are dying, there are fires all around, and no, we are not supposed to water more than twice a week at my house. Lame. But yesterday evening it rained. The air filled with the smell hours before the rain arrived and is was glorious. A glorious display of God in the midst of this dry time. It was wonderful. a stress reliever, and I look forward to more. So Lord, please send the rain. In more ways than one.
So when the rain comes, stop, and breath it in. And let the glorious wetness drown out the stress.
