And then it rained :)

I love the rain most of the time. The way it just kind of relaxes you, and makes for a really good night sleep. They way it cools everything off, even for just a moment. The smell it has, just refreshing. When I was a little girl, I would sit in the window with my Grandma and watch it rain. I would get so excited because the birdies would come. Let me explain. When the rain hits the pavement it bounces back up and over kind of like a check mark. Well to a little girl, it looked like little birdies that you draw on your paper, two little curve marks. You know what I am talking about. Well, if you don't, the next time it rains hard, look out on the pavement and use your imagination. It is lots of fun :)

Okay, so, I have been walking again in the mornings. It has been nice to get back into a routine again, especially one when you know the Lord has put it together for you and just fits. Anyway, I got up this morning and it had been raining all day yesterday and during the night, but had stopped, so I walked. About half way through my walk the rain came , not hard enough to see my duckies, but hard enough that I was soaked. It was like a healing rain. The transforming kind, like you see in the movies. Everything is going wrong for that person, then it rains, and now things pick up and the person can smile again because they now have hope. Well that is how I felt this morning walking in the rain. I am climbing out of the hole I have been in , the dirt has been cleaned off, and now all you see is the sparkling and refreshed princess! It was an exciting time with the Lord this morning and I am excited about what He is going to do in me and through me today!
