968. O rain, tear-like drops of almighty nature…in times of need you are a blessing. ~Excerpted lines from a poem by George Krokos

A
drop
of rain is
like a sudden
knock at the door.
Unexpected, yet often
welcomed with a smile. It
can brighten your day or ruin
your plans. It can make you laugh
or make you sad. Whether a raindrop
is moving fast or slow, or is big or small,
it always gets everyone’s attention. A rain-
drop contains many secrets. It’s a bubble of
excitement and wonder cleansing the earth,
nuturing the flowers, and filling the cracks.
The rain is seldom silent. It taps on roofs,
spatters on the windows, and splashes
down making mud puddles; those
are ways for raindrops to play.
Pitter patter, pitter pat
Pat, pat, pat!

Rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. ~Excerpted line from Joel 2:23   ✝

**I found this clever rain drop on the Internet and then changed it somewhat to make the shape a little more a drop of rain.

  1. Rains can be a blessing indeed as will these coming in Wed night and Thurs. They will soak the roots of trees and shrubs so the freeze Thurs. night won’t be so hard on them. I love the rain drop. 🙂

  2. Your commenters are such a nice bunch, Natalie.
    Your rain post is welcome since we need reminders of Why? we need rain! 🙂 Rain on a wedding day is supposed to be good luck as well as we need this for animals who may be parched. There was a cat trying to sip rain from a puddle the other morning in the street. It made me sad and worried, as I slowed so she or he would get back to the curb. ♡
    Have a very special Thanksgiving, Natalie.

    • Thanks, I think all of you are a lovely bunch of commenters!!! I didn’t know that rain was good luck on a wedding day. So I hope you get some for that and the animals and land. I pray you have a fabulous visit with your family and so have a very special Thanksgiving, dear Robin. Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤
