The Cleansing Power of Raindrops

 I liked the lyrics of this song:
"Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops?
What if your healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near?"

Aren't raindrops amazing? They can wash away filth, grime, and allow things to grow. Collectively, they can cause a flood. That's become our sprinkle others with h.o.p.e. As more people come together and break the silence of grief...a flood of h.o.p.e. begins to speak to others. I've never feared rain, myself. I love the sound of it on my roof. I remember a moment I shared with my husband over a decade ago in the first we ran, then we stopped and just let it wash over us. After we lost our son, the smell, feeling, and sound of rain cleansed my negative feelings and gave me hope. The next time it rains, I invite you to step outside and let it wash over your body, cleansing away the grime of whatever you might be feeling...and let it help you to grow.

What gives you hope?  Please comment to share!
