Rain

Rain is in the forecast today.
I love rainy days.
I love rainy nights.
I especially love the sound of rain on our "tin" roof--we live in our RV, so the sound of the rain is more amplified than in a house, I think.
I love to curl up in granny b's quilt and read when it is cool and rainy.
I love taking a nap on a rainy afternoon.
I love walking in the rain on a warm summer afternoon.
I love the squish of mud between my toes when I am barefoot.
but not when I am wearing my favorite sandals.
I love to sit in the boat in its covered slip and watch the rain come down.
My husband likes to drive in the rain, especially when it is stormy, with thunder and lightening. Our pom Frankie loves to ride in the car when it is raining. Of course, he loves to ride in the car any time. Just rattle your car keys and he is sooo ready.
Our grandchildren like playing in the rain, splashing in puddles, making mud pies and mud roadways and mud forts and....mud anything.
I love watching the rain fall on the lake. Sometimes it's like a silvery curtain moving across the water.That makes me think about Genesis, when the Holy Spirit moved upon the face of the water...wonder if that is what it looked like.
I love sitting under our canopy, drinking coffee, watching the rain fall, holding hands with Wick, and listening to him hum a song under his breath.
We both love rain.

I could almost feel the rain from reading this! And the thing about the rain moving across the water, gave me chills!

And to think, I was just sitting in my den, looking out of the windows watching it rain...and I was feeling a little gloomy! Well--have you changed my perspective. Yahoo! It's raining!
