Lost in the rain

The sun was directly overhead, and the air was stifling. I was indoors, trying to beat the heat. The fan was in full blast.

I was writing something when the skies suddenly darkened. I felt a cool breeze enter the house. Minutes later, I saw raindrops outside, first in trickles, and then in a massive gush of water from the heavens.

I took my shirt off, flung it on the floor, and headed straight to the garden. Ah, the rain. I haven't soaked myself wet in the rain for a very long time.

People inside the house were looking at me, smiling at seeing me enjoy myself like I never have before.

I felt a kind of childlike freedom as I lifted my hands to the skies, feeling the cold water flow on my skin. I was left on my own, enjoying that moment of clarity, and boy it felt great.

Thank You, Lord, for watering the earth with your goodness (Psalm 65:9).

  1. That's what I miss about Marbel. It hasn't rained here in QC since I got back.

    Honestly, I can't imagine you taking your clothes off and soaking yourself in the rain. Sana you had a picture to accompany this post. Hahahahaha :D

  2. It must be very hot there.

    It's hard to believe, but I do have a body inside my shirt. Sayang, I didn't have waterproof cam.
