‘Is God crying, mama?’ he asked, wrapping his little arms around my leg. ‘No baby, God’s not crying. He’s giving water to the trees and the flowers and you and me too.’
I looked down into those big brown eyes. He seemed satisfied with my answer. ‘God must love us.’ He concluded with typical five year-old wisdom that warms the heart of Jesus.
‘You’re so right, buddy. The rain is one of the ways God tells us he loves us. Kind of like a big hug from daddy or a face full of kisses from nana,’ I offered. ‘Every drop is God telling us He loves us.’
‘Let’s tell Him we love him back, mama!’, he said between up and down jumps and clapping hands.
So we stepped out from under the awning and tipped our faces up toward the sky. Our shoes sloshed in the wet grass as we let God’s love fall all over us. And we did a little jig and shouted at the top of our voices, ‘WE LOVE YOU TOO, GOD!’
The sound wouldn’t carry far over the patter of the rain. But they were heard, carried by the Spirit to the One whose love had soaked us through.

Very sweet piece, full of the wisdom of a child. You might consider breaking up your dialogue by adding spaces, making each a different paragraph for an easier read.

Enjoyed the message. ~Mary

That was precious. Short and sweet, but you showed so much emotion. I liked it a lot.

A sweet conversation. When you live in Scotland and it rains so much, it is not always seen as a blessing!
