fmf | feel the rain

. ... . .... ... ... ... ... .... .. .. .. . ... .... .. . .. .. .
Some people feel the rain - others just get wet!

A couple of years ago - I can recall...outdoors planting some "gifted" plants and wanted to get them in the ground before it rained.  You know how things "grow"...?  Better to set in wet soil than in dry....however, a good soaking rain (after planting) is especially good!!!
My girlies were out there with me - and before I knew it, here it came.  A gentle but steady - WET - rain.  Getting rather intense, actually.  My first thought was to race indoors and call the girls behind me.  Nope!!

They were having fun!!  Twirling and laughing.  Soaking it all up.  The blessing of feeling the rain - and not just getting wet.   I, on the other hand,   had to really think about that.  As much as I love me a rainy day (and I talk about that often) my first and immediate inclination is to run in and get out of the rain.   I don't know that I've slowed ever down long enough to really feel it.   Maybe I have.  I'm getting better.  At least, I hope so.

You know.  Troubles - they fall like rain...we say.   Why are we in such a hurry to get out of the rain?  Why are we in such a hurry to get out of the troubles - that come?  Blessings also fall like rain - we like to say!
Yet, we're willing to bask in those?   I don't know. 
I'm pondering all of this today... how about you?  Are you a person who just gets wet or do you like feeling the rain?

Joining up with Five Minute Friday community where today's word prompt is:


  1. I think I'm a let's get out of the rain before I get wet kind of person lol. Nice post.

  2. I've always been a let's play in the rain kind of girl even to the point of standing outside in a hurricane and basking in the strength and energy of the storm. I have never thought of it in the terms of problems and blessings though. Hmm... I need to ponder this.

  3. A few weeks back I was walking at the local track, which only has one way in one way out when not in use.. so the sun was shining, and I knew I had two laps left, Boom.. down came a downpour out of a cloud all of its own..I remember wanting to run to get to my car, but something stopped me dead in my tracks.. the thought of how I never enjoy something so beauty as RAIN.. So in that moment I slowed my walk, continued my walk, got in my laps and praised GOD all the way.. God is so good and I am learning to slow down and enjoy..

  5. You always bring up such deep thoughts! Getting wet or feeling the drops?
    I'm both depending on the circumstance. I want to enjoy the rain, knowing I'm not in control.
    Blessings to you and your family.
