Presence

 Chasing water like it’s my job. It’s the one thing that gets me going. It hydrates, cleanses, refreshes and restores. I’m awaiting the rain to fall, and my soul rejoices. Another chance to relax while enjoying seeing God work. Stepping back so I can be present in the now. Taste it.  Smell it.  Touch it. Let my senses glisten in anticipation. Presence is the best present. Try it.

  6. I love the smell of rain and after a few hot days we had rain and my grandaughters laughed because I walked home from the local shop in barefeet and splashed in the puddles lol

  10. Dearest Regine,
    Sure, chasing the water away! We are since April waiting for the garden to dry out enough so trees can be cut and stumps removed. NOT yet possible...

  19. Isn't it something how a good rain storm can slow you down and give you time to think and appreciate how precious it is in our life. Praying that for so many who are in drought right now!

  25. I am a "knower" that the only thing that's real is in the present moment. Everything in the past is just a memory sweet or sour as it might be. The miracle happens in the moment when we as the Beatles sang "Let it Be."
