Tonight I rode my bike to the grocery store.
I carried the cute wicker basket in to go get a couple of things.
I noticed the clouds building in the South but went into the store anyway.
I came out with my things, put the basket back on my bike and undid the lock.
The clouds were above my head and weighted heavy with water.
I mounted my seafoam green cruiser and it began to sprinkle.
As I continued down the path the clouds opened up and a beautiful heavy summer rain poured on me all the way home.
I started to cry tears that matched the droplets of rain.
In the rain your tears are hidden.
I wasn't crying because it was raining on me like a bad luck thing.
I was crying because I felt Gods love pouring on me!
The rain was cool & refreshing!
I hadn't played in the rain in years!
And tonight I was surprised with His love pouring down on me and I got to delight in the rain!
In the next couple of days we are supposed to get rain.
I suggest you go play in it.
Jump in the puddles
Play in the rain.
I wrote this June 16, 2014. Close to the same evening that I received news that changed the course of my life. God's goodness never wavered and He still pours His love on me and I still play in the rain!
Always play in the rain!
