Rain Songs

...I love to sit by an open window in the evening and listen to the night sounds. Darkness has fallen…ending the day by tucking it in for the night.  I hear the singing of the katydids, crickets, and frogs. Their music is soft and sweet to my ears, bringing a relaxed safe feeling to my world. Rest is coming, a calm peacefulness is settling over me. The wind begins to pick up and stir the leaves, rustling them about in the shadows …the coolness flows through the window, fresh and clean. Listen, Listen…here come the rain drops which join in song with the others. Ever so gently they sprinkle the world with their nourishment. It is like manna from heaven…something beautiful, a spiritual cleansing of the earth. I say my prayers.  Soon it will welcome a new morning, making it grow and bloom.  I am grateful...
Morning Merry~Gold
3/30 Today I am thankful for the sweet rain.

Keeping it real and uncomplicated



Today I’m…

Christmas shopping on line

Listening to the hum of the washing machine

Being satisfied with the election outcome

Planning supper

Thinking of someone I love

Remembering someone who is in heaven

Wondering what I’ll do next…

Oh I miss the sound of the rain- and I need to get busy with more of my Christmas shopping. I haven't checked the news today for local election results, but went to bed happy with the way things were going :)
Hope you are well!

I am loving the rain we are getting right now, although, I would love to be watching it rain from my couch instead of my desk at work. :) It was great to talk to you the other day at the reunion. Hope you have a great day!!

Ahh yes the sun needs the rain for the rainbow to be. But I guess at night, we don't get the rainbow. Still it's a lovely thought.

Yes, I love to stand at my kitchen window and listen to the leaves rustling around in the night and watch the moon shine across the darkness. It is such a calm, relaxing feeling that lets you drift off to a much more peaceful world.

I, too, am satisfied with the election outcome. =]
