Last night, I fell asleep to the sound of rain outside my window. It’s simple, but that sound is all I really need to make me feel comforted and set my soul at rest.
After spending 2 months in a cold, dry South African winter, I am glad to have a dose of my Seattle rain.
I always can use some Seattle. Even though I love traveling and I get restless easily in Seattle, I’m realizing that I still need my Seattle fix when I am elsewhere in the world. Rain is just that. It makes me feel at home. I mean, what else is Seattle known for besides coffee, computers, and airplanes? The fact that it “rains all the time.” (Which is not true! It just rains…most of the time).
I need my rain.
I am being reminded ever so gently, to be happy that I am in Seattle for now. I need to appreciate my time here, because who knows where I could be in the next few years.
I will go wherever God calls me. I just hope they have some good rain there.
