Rain

The mind awakes and listens.

Something is different.

“Oh, it's raining.” The thought is tinged with a vague sense of regret, like sadness or disappointment.

Isn’t it odd how we ascribe meaning to things? Sunshine we endow with joy, warmth and happiness. Rain we associate with a lack of sunshine, and therefore a shortage of these comforting allied elements. “Oh, it's raining…sad day.”

In this, the mind deceives, and further reflection proves it so. Oh, it's raining! The grass will be greener, the air cleared of pollen, the flowers will grow and bloom. Fresh, clean water; an apparent shortage on our planet, falls freely from the sky!

Without this life-giving water, life could not exist. The rain brings balance, life restoring energy and hope to our lush garden home. It's raining…what a blessing!

It's raining. God is in God’s heaven, and all is right with the world.

It's raining, and all will be well.

  2. My little Henry saw the rain out our window this morning after 5 days of sunshine, including one wonderful afternoon spent wading at the beach (in April!). Rather than being disappointed, he announced, "Rain! Everything is going to smell great and rainy."
