Love of Rain
Rain is a comfort to me. Every time I have a bad day, I just wish it would rain. The sounds of the rain hitting the pavement, dripping from the roofs off buildings. The feeling as the rain hits my body, as I walk from class back to my apartment. The way the Earth smells after a good rain storm.
Water is comforting to me. Growing up, I didn't like to swim. Now I do. I love showers, walking in rain, swimming. It just helps me relax, and gain a better perspective.
I thank the Lord each time it rains, because He makes it rain at the exact times that I need it.
