Thank God for Rainy Days

I live in a rural urban town (?). I also live on "Main Street". And a state route--a means to connect other rural towns--travel from South to North and vice-versa. It is usually busy--with vehicle noise and people noise--music, mowers, bikes, etc. Early Sunday mornings temper all that. Couple that with rain and it can be downright serene. And I am grateful.

I notice most people complain of inclement or tempestuous weather. It seems to inconvenience plans. I like it. Maybe for just that reason.

The longer I'm around--the more I study and reflect, the better perspective I get on my life. The rain is an opportunity to slow down--pause or rest. It has work to do as well.

In film/movies, rain is symbolism for change.

MARCH 31 Arounf the Year
To see God is to apprehend Truth as it really is, and this is infinate freedom, and perfect bliss.

  • I completely agree Todd, I like all the different ypes of weather. I hear so many people complain about the rain or the snow or the cold weather. There are few things that make me happier than a huge snow storm, or some really cold weather. "It has work to do as well", I like that. Thanks for sharing this today my friend. 

  • The rain is natures way of taking a bath. The best smelling air is after it rains. Sitting and listening to the rhythm of the rain clears the mind. 

    Rhythm of the Rain
    Song by Dan Fogelberg

    Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
    Telling me just what a fool I've been

    Like Fox said, With a clear mind, we can see life as it is. Al the prejudice wash away is freedom. 

    Janis Joplin sang about perfect bliss.
    I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
    I was playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues, yeah
    Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
    We sang every song that driver knew
    Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
    Nothin', don't mean nothin' hon' if it ain't free, no no
    And, feelin' good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues
    You know, feelin' good was good enough for me
    Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee
    From the Kentucky coal mine to the California sun
    There Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
    Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done
    Yeah, Bobby baby kept me from the cold
