It’s raining! We have needed the rain so desperately. And it here it is. We have the windows at our home open wide so that we can capture some of the cool breeze as it mingles with the rain and winds its way through our part of the country.
I have decided to turn off the TV as I type. I don’t want any distractions that would keep me from hearing the sound of the rain. The heavenly sight and sound of the rain brings me a sense of balance. The simple act of opening the windows and turning off the TV reminds me about the control I do have in my life.
It seems that all too often things are out of our control. I don’t know about you, but I have many days where I feel like I can’t get a grasp on anything. At times my life feels like a speeding, reckless train headed to the depths of the unknown. And then I have days like today where I am reminded that I do have control over many things in my life. I can choose to open the windows and allow the fresh aroma of the rain to fill my house. I can choose to turn off the TV and allow the sound of the rain to calm my senses. The question now remains…what will you choose to do today?
