Notice I still have my summer tomoatoes up on the everyday banner. That's 'cause it's so hot here yet. It dosen't feel like fall at all. Except the nights are getting cooler.
So today, I'm picking rain as my everyday thing that makes me content. I love rain at this time of year. I'm not talking of rain that will not go away and comes down all day in a deluge, but the rain that comes slow, stays only a day or two. It does so many things to make me feel content. It's like it's washing the earth. Washing it from the heat, the dryness and dustiness of August heat. And it smells so good. I always think that that is what God's cologne would smell like if He wore cologne. Silly, I know, but I've had that thought since childhood, and ya know, I've kept it because it makes me feel sorta secure and happy. A nice rain at this time of year gives everything outside a perkier look, like they've had a nice cool glass of water. Somehow it's not quite the same from a garden hose and sprinkler. I don't know, maybe I'm off my rocker. But I'm sure they just stand a little straighter and stronger like they just scrubbed up to be inspected by the King. Yes, rain definitely does this soul good!
