No, that wasn’t another North Cal earthquake.
It was the standing ovation and happy dance of all of us here who woke up to RAIN!!!!
I can count on less than one hand the number of times I have experienced any type of rain at all in the 15 months we’ve lived her.
So, yes. The earth IS moving under our feet a bit. 🙂
I swear the trees are gulping down this liquid sunshine., one thirsty swallow after another.
The grass is looking up so every blade can see the glory of each drop making it’s way into the ground that feeds them.
And I’m not even kidding….my flowers are grinning from petal to petal!
Even the birds are breaking out in newly inspired songs of glee.
THIS is the magic that happens during the first rain after a drought.
I could sit and just watch it all day long.
Cool, refreshing, cleansing rain. It seems to affect body, mind and heart when it has too long been a stranger. It heals a parched earth. It soothes a parched soul.
Just the rhythmic sound is enough to put me into a trance of sweet peace and complete oblivion to anything else going on in the world.
I plan on enjoying every single minute of this downpour.
My personal reminder of Jesus’ healing rain in my life. Those precious moments of aha! and refreshment from His Word. Drops of healing that nourish my heart and bring growth and change. Downpours of grace and sweet patience as He works on me.
Brown begins to turn green.
Healthy, vibrant green.
Soft to the touch and strong to the core.
Jeremiah 17:14 – Lord, heal me and I will be completely well; rescue me and I will be perfectly safe. You are the one I praise!
Psalm 30:2 – O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
Psalm 147:3 – He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
