It has been rainy here in good old Pennsylvania. Soppy and wet with the dogs tracking mud in not to mention the hit my curly hair takes as I run and in out of the post office or dollar store.
But, I love walking in the rain. The ideal would be to have a little warmer temperature than it is now though. It reminds me of a picture I came across this summer when it was hot and humid. As I looked at the picture, I could almost feel the rain drizzling on my face. I could feel the relief that it brought from the hot day.
Then I thought how the words are so appropriate. Because of grace, I can also feel relief. Relief from guilt and fear. In a word: forgiveness.
