Spring Showers
Heart to Heart

[Reprinted from There’s No Place Like Home book]


      Ever since I’ve been knee high to a puddle duck, whether sprinkling or pouring, I have loved rain. I love to see rain, hear rain, smell rain, taste rain, and feel rain. On cold rainy days, I feel all snuggly inside our home. On warm days, I love to walk about feeling the soft rain as it kisses my skin. In fall I love to go out in the early morning and find the dew diamonds on leaves and spider webs. In summer I love to watch God’s splendid orchestration of storms across the horizon. At night I love to hear rain on the roof.

      Recently while studying the other planets and their atmospheres, I was so awestruck at the wonder of God’s magnificent design for our dwelling place—just perfect in every way. As spring approaches, I’m thankful for the spring showers—God’s gift to us—in preparation for May flowers.

      Happy Splashing!
