Blessings Of The Rain

Here in Kentucky we are in the grip of a slow moving tropical system. Waves of showers have been sweeping through as the counterclockwise swirl does a slow waltz across the region.

There are many blessings that come with the rain. It’s quiet. There are no lawnmowers running. Flowers and newly seeded grass are thriving. Tree frogs strike up loud choruses on some mysterious froggy cue. One can take a guiltless siesta in a perfect sleeping environment or watch a pair of Eastern Phoebes build a nest in the eaves.

The sun returns Tuesday.
