Rain........beautiful rain!!!  Water condensed from atmospheric vapor, falling to earth in drops!
It has been almost 3 months since Kansas has seen any steady rain for longer than 20 minutes.........ahhh..........the moisture and wet drops fill my heart and soul with JOY!  

Have you ever smelled rain?  If not, next time it rains go outside on your porch or deck or driveway and smell the is heavenly!!!!  

Years ago, there was an email sent around several times about a premature baby who almost doesn't make it, then years later after the crisis is over, this baby who is now 5, 6, 7 or 8 years old smells the rain and runs to her mother and says:  "Mommy, do you smell it?  Do you smell Him???"  The mother sits her child down and says, "What do you mean, can I smell the rain?"  The little girl replies, "it smells just like Him - the one who held me when I was's Him!"  The mother sits back and realizes how God held her little girl in those infancy stages when she almost did not make!  What a gift her little girl is today and what a gift from that little one to tell her about God!

Rain, beautiful rain........keep on coming today!  Drop away, Lord, drop away!!!

Can you smell it?  Can you smell Him???  The fragrance is ever so sweet........enjoy!!!
