Rainy Daze

 It has been raining all day. I love rain. I think I may even be just a little weird about rain. Most people like it when needed, but soon tire of it, and are ready to see the sun shine. They say, areas where it rains most of the time, have high suicide rates. I don't know why I am the way I am. I just think rain makes everything more beautiful.

  We went to Cooper State Park this morning. The fog was so heavy on the lake, it appeared to go on forever. I felt a calmness, I haven't felt in a very long time. We walked through a thickly wooded area, hearing only an occasional raindrop or leaf falling. I looked up at the grey wintry sky, just in time to see the tiniest little red bird, a cardinal, flying over and perching himself in a tall tree. In the peaceful quiet, I could almost feel God's breath on my neck.
 I've heard it said, Our objective in this life, is not to arrive safely at death.
 I don't know why I am in this place, but I know God has placed me here. And makes me calm.


About Me

A wife, mother, and spoiler of small dogs, I grew up in a small West Texas town, with my eyes full of sand, and my heart full of joy.
