We had a good rain yesterday, steady and soaking, washing the pollen from my car and watering the plants that are so vibrantly bursting forth.
The rain has moved out and left these wonderfully clean skies that, as I was driving this morning, had just the tiniest smattering of clouds. The grass is wet and green; the dogwoods in full bloom; and the light golden and soft on this beautiful Spring morning. The birds are singing, and a gentle breeze blowing.
The breeze seems to whisper the words of Psalm 118:24: “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
