Rain


jewels on the tree beside our porch
We woke up this morning to yet another day of rain and clean clothes from yesterday still wet on the porch clothesline. Somehow, the weather mirrored our sadness at Aaron being gone, but the words of Job pulled my eyes off of myself and drew my heart's eyes to our sovereign Lord.
"How great is God -- beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out. He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams; the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind. Who can understand how he spreads out the clouds, how he thunders from his pavilion? See how he scatters his lightning about him, bathing the depths of the sea." Job 36:26-30

Thank you for sharing...that really is beautiful, and such a great reminder to see God in all things, even the dreary and sad. Praying for all of you during this separation!
