To Run, or Not to Run

I woke up this morning.  (Thank you God!)

It wasn’t sunny, exactly, but there was sun and it wasn’t raining.  So, I decided to run.   My 5K is coming up THIS month and I haven’t ran in over a WEEK!

So, I take off; stroller and two babies in tow.  It was sprinkling a bit, so I decided to take the short route first (just in case).  By sprinkling a I mean VERY slight mist.  I got about half way around and WAM! it became a downpour!

Not that I particularly minded…  It was just the irony.  I kind of enjoyed it.  

I did cut it short.  (Only a mile.)  The almost 4 year old kept telling me his Batman shoes were getting wet, and seeing as I didn’t know how long it would last I figured I would take the kids in…

Now, it is sunny, and the rain is drying up.  😉

Rainy Days

I love rainy days.  (It’s a good thing, too, because we have been having a LOT of them, lately.)  Soft rain, hard rain, heavy rain, windy rain, steady rain, or stormy rain; I love rain!

Speaking of stormy rain…  I have, recently, found myself in multiple conversations with people regarding God and storms.  In my Bible readings over the past year, I have found that it seems God does travel quite a bit in storm clouds.  🙂  

Maybe THIS is why I have always LOVED rain, and I will take a thunderstorm any day(s) of the week!

They are comforting.  They are calming.  They help things grow.  My three year old tells me, EVERY TIME it rains now, that God makes it rain so the flowers can grow (this is something they have taught him at school and he is VERY eager to share the things he learns).  Rain, also, cleans things…washes the dirt RIGHT off…

See where I am going with this?? 

If we will let Him, GOD will wash OUR dirt away.  It doesn’t matter how dirty we think we are; no job is too tough for Him!  HE will leave us calm and comforted and DEFINITELY with growth.

So…  I believe it’s safe to say…  GOD IS IN THE CLOUDSS!!!!  😉  Watch for Him; talk to Him.  Be comforted, and know that He is always with us when we need Him.  All we have to do is ASK.

I know the lessons haven’t been very CRAZY lately, but I’m SURE something exciting will happen SOON!  😉
