Refreshing rain

Rain.

Rain falls this morning.  Gentle rain.  Refreshing rain after days of oppressive heat when flowers wilt and people just want to stay inside.

I read Jeremiah 31:25.

“I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”

I receive the Word with joy and expect to be refreshed.

Today, I count blessings, grace flowing down.  I notice them.  I count them.  I record them.   And I give thanks.

This tired body and languishing soul will be satisfied.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High . . . Psalm 92:1

  1. The soft rain does calm our soul… slows things down… gives us a time to regroup…
    Your back yard… reminds me of mine…deck…trees…bird feeders…
    A peaceful place as we wander from flower to flower…
    You have great strength through “grace” it seems…Sometimes I wonder… how strong can one be?…but, with God’s help… as strong as necessary!

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Let's talk.
