{rainy thoughts}

Rain.

Rain everywhere.

Gently tapping on the rooftop and bouncing off of each branch and leaf on the tall and stately trees in my front yard.

Pouring down the rain spout and spreading across the lawn, bringing a delightful hue of green we haven’t observed in weeks…

Washing the pollen and dust off of the roses and bringing with it the delightful smell of a good rainfall….there’s nothing like it. =]

It’s been raining off-and-on for days now, a rarity for my beloved Sunny South in August. The relief from the heat has been a blessing, and we’ve been able to open our windows quite a bit to let in some fresh air.

It’s making me ever more excited for the arrival of autumn, with all of it’s delights and wonders. Our home was a bit cooler this morning, so I stayed in bed much longer than usual just enjoying the warmth of the covers and the delay of the sun coming up.

I also dressed in layers and enjoyed a warm mug of coffee…it’s just been an all-around “lazy” day for me. I think I’m just tired, so I’m blaming it on the rain and the instant sense of calm that it brings into my life. I actually fell asleep working today. Probably not the best thing. =]

The rain is also putting me in a rather contemplatively-creative writing mood…y’all watch out! =D I’m hoping to catch the blog up a bit soon. We’ve had quite a bit going on around here lately!

Many blessings to each of you on this beautiful rainy day the Lord has made.
