what the rain says

there's a gentle rain
tapping the roof
it's the only sound
and
it's after
a college visit with older son on saturday
and
it's after
an eleven-boy sleepover last night
there's a gentle rain
tapping the roof
it's the only sound
and it's
reminiscent of god's
great
provision
there's a gentle rain
tapping the roof
it's the only sound

what does rain say to you?

  1. Beautiful, Kendal. We need the gentleness of rain to remind us that God remembers our every need. And He is bigger than it all...

  2. Kendal--we are visiting our children in Vancouver WA and I went to sleep last night with the sound of the rain pitter pattering on the leaves outside and thought, "I love the sound of rain." It is such a restful sound.....

  4. Love this, Kendal. We spent the weekend in Auburn with my youngest daughter. Beautiful weather; beautiful times. Today at home it is doing the gentle rain thing. It seems appropriate. I've taken the morning off to sit with it and stray from my regular schedule.

  7. First off, 11 boy sleep over? High five, girl.

    Second, I love the rain. It does something calming to my soul and reminds me of home.

  8. 11 boys! yowzas! I love the sound of rain on the roof -- especially when I can snuggle the littles in bed or read beside the fireplace.

  9. beautiful. you may be marginally off your rocker with the headcount at that sleepover, but that's what's so brave and admirable about you.

    rain says different things to me, just depending. sometimes it's cleansing. sometimes melancholy. sometimes a call to quiet, to huddle close and warm and to love my dears, to worship a God who provides.

  11. Oh, how I love the sound of the rain. If it's raining at night, we will sleep with the window cracked just so we can hear it.
