Little Things Thursday|Rain

I love a good cleansing summer rain.

rain wash

After days of hot, steamy weather I look forward to seeing the thunder clouds roll in with the promise of renewing the parched ground and spurring on growth.

Everything the rain touches breathes a sigh of sweet relief, including our tired souls.  From a distance the rain may seem menacing, a foe.

But as the saying goes: There are no rainbows without a little rain. Everything is grace. Even the things for which we struggle to give thanks.

When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know. 

Also joining Black and White Wednesday.

  16. Such a sweet shot – and so true. I think I’ve seen this grace more and more as my kids have gotten older – the more they walk through storms and come out on the other side, the clearer it becomes that we’re being carried. Always.
