As I read Alicia's most recent post today,
I knew what she meant.
I love the blue skies of summer,
the light that fills our home
and my heart.
But sometimes it just gets to be too much --
when there is day after day of endless hot
(and abnormally humid) weather.
And when the landscape seems parched and dry,
and a bit dull,
well my soul just longs for some good old PNW rain to come and refresh the earth,
and maybe my heart too.
This week, during our vacation, I got my wish...
Yes, bright sunny days at the coast are amazing...
but foggy ones,
though they obscure parts of the landscape,
make the coastline seem like its own magical kingdom!
And when the raindrops fall,
native plant berries glow like beautiful jewels.
And though beach fun may be cut short...
My heart sings as the parched earth and plants drink of this heavenly blessing!
And it soars as I think how loving our God is to send us just what is so badly needed right now.
His love is truly, truly incredible...
His blessings are without number!
Thank you LORD,
