The rain has a smell like anything else
like flowers or grass or dust on a shelf
It is pleasant but cold
fun whether young or old
Sometimes we tend to get lost in life
but when the rain pours down it makes everything right
Gardens will grow
creeks overflow
to wash away
things that shouldn't stay
Its like God filters the earth
making it clean from all of the worst
Personally I pray for the smell of rain
mostly to keep me from going insane
the smell of rain is the same as none
With out the rain, you wouldn't appreciate the sun

Praying Christ will send some rain your way.
Love in Christ,

You are so right, Jenna. Without the rain we wouldn't appreciate the sun OR the "SON". I have seen so many Faithwriter members be able to express deep pain . The sharing of it seems to have a cleansing effect, like the RAIN, and then some of the same writers, in a little while, will begin to express peace and joy, and healing. Keep up the good work and be blessed by this increible FW family. We number in the thousands, you know. :0)

Very nice! Thanks for putting words to the scent of a cleansing rain.
