A Rainy Summer Day

I remember when I was a child, a rainy summer day was always greeted with
frowns and moans of disappointment, for all it meant to me was that this
would be a day when I couldn't play outside.

Now from the other end of the spectrum, I rejoice to see the clouds roll in, for it means a respite, a slowing down, a little rest that a rainy day can provide.

Somehow the arrival of rain changes the routine, I look for different things to do, and just the chance to re-arrange my daily routine brings refreshment and a
new point of view.

It reminded me to think of other changes, other things that might
interrupt my daily routine; and to greet them all as an opportunity, instead
of something meant to annoy, and then to enjoy the little change in my
scene.

Instead of the chores I meant to do this day, I can instead find a
different thing to do, for the rain outside gives me the perfect excuse
to alter my plan and find a brand new direction to pursue.

I think God puts these little bumps in my day so that I will slow down and really see the many blessings I have, so I can concentrate on them instead of being disappointed in the things that today are not to be.

I thank God for the little turns that my path will take today, for the things
I've been overlooking that I can discover anew, and for giving me a new
treasure trove of ways to show and tell how very much I love you!

I can re-discover the joy of just doing something with you, it really doesn't matter what that might be, but just to treasure the time we can spend together shows me again what your love means to me.

Trish, Great article. Check your first paragraph for too many 'was' words.
