life as a spring shower

12 October, 2009

It’s Spring Down Under, and the weather is switching and changing and as usual in Melbourne it’s not unlikely to have four seasons in one day. I’m not a huge fan of the high winds and cold weather, but rather really enjoy the intermittent moments (and occasional days) of sunshine.

However, I have to say that one of my favourite things is a spring shower on a warm day. I love the big drops of rain. I love the smell after the rain. I love the refreshing a spring shower brings to my senses.

The serendipitous beauty overwhelms me. I sing for joy at the grace of refreshing.

Mercy and love
Blue skies
Gentle clouds that mean no harm shed their life on all below.

Turning my eyes towards the heavens I smile and wipe the water from my face and thank the One who refreshes this life.
