Rainy Days

Once again I awaken to the sound of raindrops on the roof…

Another rainy day…

Though I love a sunny day there is something peaceful about a rainy day.

Rainy days make me feel all warm and cozy inside.

I love the sound the rain makes as it hits the roof and then as it pours into the gutters eventually finding its way to the ground.

I love looking out the window and watching as the world around me becomes saturated eventually the ground becomes soaked so deep that the raindrops have nowhere else to go except to form small rivers running across the grass.

20141013_123026I love how some of the drops stick to the pine tree needles looking like slivers of ice.

20141013_122439I love how it also seems to pick the fall colored leaves right off of the trees.  Some are so heavy with moisture they stick to the ground while others drop on top of the streams of water to float softly away, like my thoughts today.

Thankfulness and contentment are my thoughts today.

Thank you God for rainy days.
