Refreshing Rain and God’s Love

Rain falling on the roof
The drip of each drop matches the rythim of your soul
The God inside you begins to reverberate with the rest of creation

Water really is an everyday miracle of God, that is even found in our baptism.  Many of you have probably heard this before, but it is worth noting.  Water is a great substance in that when it freezes it floats, which keeps our lakes constantly melting each year.  If the water got more dense and sank each year the lakes would just slowly freeze over.  It goes from one form to the next effortlessly and in turn we receive the things we need from it.  Ice to cool things off, clouds to create shade and provide us with liquid rain for our food and water.  Many times I catch myself thinking, how many people have had to drink this drop of water I now drink.  The other thing that comes to mind is that when I was baptized, the water that baptized Christ, at some point touched the great waters that baptized me.  Christ and I were baptized in the same waters…Christ is present in miracle of water.

Water as an everyday miracle carries the good news of Christ.

  1. A simple, beautiful and refreshing blog! Living through the last few days of rain and quiet help make the images you share here more powerful — but even without them, your words are like water. They invite us into communion with Christ and with one another. Your words, also make me think of Amos’ –let justice roll down like waters- that water so cool and inviting, so easy and free is also a force to reckoned with, shaping canyons and carving rock. How gentle and how powerful is the love of God. Thanks for this.

  2. Mmmm… I can see and feel the water. I had never thought of the water of my baptism being connected to the water of Christ’s baptism. Wonderful thought…
    Thank you!

  3. Hi
    First of all can you bestow on my your technology gift so I might too be able to share the warmth of this blessing with others?

    Second, what wonderful words of hope and peace through the power and grace of nature. Water has always had a special place in my Spiritual heart I grew up a few blocks from a large lake in MI. When I was a little girl, I even ranaway and went to the park so I could see the water and watch the ships go by. As I got older, I had to see and be near the water, it provided so much freedom. I have many fond memories of the wind blowing in my hair and the sun shining on my face as I sat on the sandy beach. It seemed there was only nature and me. In my recent days, I am still compelled to go the the water. I have to visit the Ocean many times a year to hear to embrace the powerful roar of the tide coming and going out as the sun pulls it toward the heat of its shining embrace. Through this, it drips, it flows, it towers over us with a powerful wave, crash or gentle spinkle. The whole experience reminds me of the love of Christ. The gentle, yet firm and powerful grip of His hand placed upon our heart. Just as grace, it starts without even knowing its there, it becomes evident, we accept it, we become close and in recipocal relationship with Christ, and we in turn feel the yearning to give back to grow to learn to change and work until we see Christ in Perfect light, the light of love.
