I love when it rains! The luminous dark gray skies make the leaves colors more magnificent, and the clean smell of earth and grass is refreshing. When it rains, I love to open the windows and listen to the gentle pitter patter on the street and watch the plump pink worms slither across the warm asphalt. It feels like a fresh new start, a new beginning.
The plants and animals need the water; it’s an essence of their survival. They yearn for it! Do we yearn for the Lord? Do we want to know more about Him? Or are we just Sunday Christians where we only have time for the Lord on Sunday and then check off the devotion box on our to-do list for the week. I am guilty of it myself but know how much I need time in the Word daily because if I don’t my focus is not where it should be during the day. I find myself more irritable, and temperamental. My kids don’t enjoy being around me and frankly I don’t enjoy being around me either.
