I’m a little weird, I guess.
Because I absolutely LOVE rainy days… and Mondays, too!
Mondays are my favorites because I am usually at home alone- which means I can get so much done! The rest of the week is go-go for all of us. Between work, school, church, teaching music lessons, running the girls here and there, doing errands…the weeks sometimes feel like a rat race! And for me, the the weekends are spent preparing for Sunday’s church service. I end up putting off a lot of things I need to do until Monday, because I know that will be a quiet day when I can get a TON done, because I’m usually home alone. Monday is my “home base” day- and, did I mention- I love Mondays?!
And when it rains, too? Well that’s just an extra blessing for me. I have always loved rainy days! I think it’s so strange how people dislike the rain. There’s something so real about it- it’s not like we melt in the rain! Sure- it might make your hair a little flat, and it might make you change your plans to stay inside- but sometimes that’s a good thing!
When I feel the rain on my skin, it makes me feel alive!
It makes my car all shiny again! (who needs a carwash when you get a good rain shower?!)
The rain reminds me that I have showers of blessings to be thankful for.
Oh- and it reminds me that I really need to go water that poinsettia my husband brought home from work the other day 🙂
“You heavens above, rain down my righteousness;
let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
let salvation spring up,
let righteousness flourish with it;
I, the Lord, have created it. Isaiah 45:8-10
