I had good intentions for Saturday. I would awake early, exercise, clean, do other important things…but I slept on.
The pitter patter of rain with occasional rumblings of thunder. It’s a good day to sleep. Or read. Or do anything but what I should do.
Life has been completely spinning. This month, I spent 3 intensive weeks at a training. In between all that, we moved our daughter back to college. Work is busy with a lot going on. My house is screaming clean me!!
Yet, right now, the need to be still outweighs all else.
Still my mind. Still my body. Still my soul.
Listen to the rhythm of the rain.
Breathe in and trust everything will be okay in its own time.
As farmers appreciate the rain as soul food for their crops, I appreciate the rain as the permission this morning to be still.
Sometimes, you just need to listen to the rain.
