Early Morning Shower

I loved the thunderstorm that hit early this morning. The sound of rain is comforting, the idea that everything is being watered is fantastic. I love a green lawn, budding flowers and the thought of fresh fruits and veggies from our garden (raspberries are ripe this week!). Thunder and lightning are God's fireworks show. He invented it even before the Chinese! Rain reminds me of cleansing... especially this week. We still had teeny bits of fireworks debris in our yard, driveway and street. But not anymore the rain washed it away! Water tables are high, rivers are full. Thunderstorms are good.

4 he is like the light of morning at sunrise
on a cloudless morning,
like the brightness after rain
that brings the grass from the earth.'
2 Samuel 23:4
