Nature and Rainbow

Rain has been on my mind a lot lately. Mostly, I think, because of the fires that have been happening. I’ve noticed it to rain more than I’m used to in the Summer. I also know there are some pretty bad thunderstorms going on in the East. First of all, I miss thunder. I can probably count the number of times I’ve heard thunder since I left North Carolina on one hand.

On June 29th, the church I belong to, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, came out with a statement asking for prayers on behalf of those affected by the wildfires.

Think what you will, but every time I’ve seen it rain since, I am filled with gratitude at the beauty of the Earth and amazement at the mercies of our Lord.

Sorry to get all Churchy, but I really do love rain! Even if you’re not religious, you have probably felt something relaxing and cleansing about rain–which is really all I’m trying to convey.
