1405. The sound of rain needs no translation. ~Author Unknown

I love the rain.
I love how it softens the outlines of things.
The world becomes softly blurred,
and I feel like I melt right into it.

And in that moment,
like a swift intake of breath,
the rain came.

Rain is grace; rain is the sky
descending to the Earth;
without rain there would be no life.
~John Updike

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head
with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song
on our roof at night And I love the rain.
~Langston Hughes

It always feels so good when it’s raining outside. And as the rain falls, it slowly fills my cup with its “unsaid music” and its healing powers, powers that bring a calming mist over my spirit and cleanse my soul. It has been said that even the smell of rain helps reduce stress and raise  moods up to 60%. And rain is not just a watering of the earth; it seems to me to be the “love of the sky for the earth.” So what’s not enjoy about it. I not only love the rain itself but also people who dance and smile in the rain. Some of my most favorite things in life are falling asleep in the rain or just sitting and watching the rain or finding a rain lily that has bloomed after the rains have come and gone.

…then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains… ~Deuteronomy 11:14 ✝

  1. I love rain, too. Some of my sweetest memories of my Dad are when he would call me to ask if it was raining where I was because it was at his house (we lived about 6 miles apart).
    Thanks for sharing. I learned a new word, too!


  2. Lot of rain here today Natalie. But we still walked over to the supermarket pushing our young grandson in his buggy with the rain cover protecting him. Tomorrow Michael is running in the Cardiff half marathon (probably in the rain – the remnants of one of the recent hurricanes), which is why we have the two boys here tonight.
