A Thought: Summer Rain. Johnny Rivers sang a song entitled “Summer Rain.” The lyrics of the first verse are:
Summer rain taps at my window
West wind soft as a sweet dream
My love, warm as the sunshine
Sitting here by me, yeah.
Yesterday the rain was welcome to cool the earth and water the green grass and spring flowers. Water refreshes—whether in the form of baptism or tears or rain—water refreshes the mind, earth and soul. Water is so important that on Creation Day 1 (Genesis 1:1-5) God created the heavens and the earth, and water was already present! “The heavens” refers to everything beyond the earth, outer space. The earth is made but not formed in any specific way, and water is there.
This morning the misty fog lingers as if to remind us to begin the day with This Creator, Whom makes all things available to us. Begin with God today, and begin your day BIG!
Happy Thursday to all, and MAKE IT COUNT!
James 4:14 “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”
