9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
So learn to appreciate the rainy days in your life, whether it's physical or emotional rain, or the sometimes confusing storms of life. Our rainy days can result in important learning experiences and great lessons of faith.
Sometimes rainy days can force us to use our creativity and talents in ways we had not thought possible. Storms of life can produce a colorful rainbow of ideas and create surprising opportunities. Stormy seas produce the need to check our spiritual compass and pay attention to navigation skills.
Let's think about this post today. Because of the rain, we have these pictures of rain in the Georgia pines. Then came the words to attach to the rain pictures. If we had not embraced the rain, we may not have a post for today.
Plus, out of these rain pictures came the thoughts of a legendary Bluegrass song performed by the fabulous Oak Ridge Boys. Sometimes, it just all works out!
Enjoy your rainy days, and especially rainy days in the pines!
