Wednesday, 05 April 2006 - Rain

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for rain.

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
~Langston Hughes

The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A rainy day is the perfect time for a walk in the woods. ~Rachel Carson

Finally, a spring rain storm. It's been so long since we had one that I forgot how wonderful it sounds and feels.

Time to celebrate.

Everyone's invited to the party - flora and fauna alike. We'll sing and dance to the rain's steady beat and primitive rhythm while the wind whistles an impromptu melody.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
