spring rains

"Let us acknowledge the LORD;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth."
Hosea 6:3

"The LORD reigns for ever and ever."
Exodus 15:18

Honestly, I had every intention of complaining about the rain this morning in this post.  I've been writing it in my head all morning...just waiting for the moment to sit and type it out. 
Before I opened my blog page, though, I sat down at my computer and did a fun little thing I like to do time to time...look up words in the Bible to see what verses are referenced for the words.
Today's choice of words, reigns and rains.
If you are in the Altanta area, there are no questions as to why I chose these words.  It has been raining all week long.  And then some.
Reading over verses that contain some form of both of these words, though, I was humbled by the words from The Word.
My circumstances remain the same; it's still raining. 
I am now reminded by each drop that His presence surrounds me such as these drops do. 
He refreshes me as the rain refreshes the land.
And His reign is neverending...just like it has seemed this week with the rain falling from the sky.
Somewhere above these clouds, the sun is shining. 
One day my Savior is coming again.
I know this.


  1. My friend is moving to the Atlanta area in a couple of weeks. Can you recommend any churches there?

  2. What a great post! I too get tired of rain...but my 3 year old loves it!

  3. Great post. I have no words to add to it.

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
