We have rain today. It is the beautiful, soft falling type. We lit the citronella candles, fixed some hot tea, gathered our coloring and reading books, chairs and blankets (did I forget anything?) and met on the porch for devotion and reading time. It was awesome! God's creation- His handiwork. The weather has cooled from the 93 degree days to a very pleasant 71 degrees.
We started In Grandma's Attic today. What great stories. I am really trying to let go of what is planned for days like today when a change of schedule is in order. My hope is that years from now my children will smell a smell or experience a rain like today and remember "that day on the porch" when we sang thank You, God, for rain... I hope that you too will seize the moment- they are so easy to let pass, aren't they?
I should disclose that the porch time was not without the usual distractions and little conflicts;) but it was a gift from God to me in my mothering journey.
