What's the weather?

The other day the kids and I went to the park and my little guy started talking to a couple of kids trying to fly a kite.  They tried for a while but never really got it going.  Well, on the way home he said, " Mom I know what makes the wind.  When God yawns, that's what makes the wind!"

It's raining, it's pouring!
As only he can seem to do, it made me start thinking.  When I was younger, all of us kids always said that when it rained, God was sad; thundering he was angry and stopping around way up there; and when it was bright and sunny God was happy!  With all the RAIN we've been having lately, I am really beginning to wonder about this.  I know just by looking at the newspaper, watching the news on TV, and surfing the net that they aren't tears of joy :(  I mean there are a lot of good things going on, but lets face it, the bad really seems to be outweighing the good. 

So... what does the rain mean to you?  I always try to think of how the rain produces good crops and brings up all the pretty flowers.  Sometimes, it seems nothing is ever going to bloom and then, SURPRISE, here are all these great new blooms.  With all the rain we have been getting maybe GOD is trying to produce a great crop this year.  Are you helping him by planting seeds?  Maybe he wants us to realize that some of the things we are doing is making him sad?  Maybe he is just trying to get us to learn to dance in the rain? 

I know he's gotten my attention, is he getting yours today?

  1. Yes, it does seem like the good outweighs the bad... especially when we see so much bad on the news...
    but... so many get saved every day... someone starts a new homeless shelter with an amazing Bible study... a child donates food to a soup kitchen... a mother falls to her knees in prayer...
