Rainy Day Sunday-God's Drink of Life

Yep, it is raining here in drought-ridden Columbus, Ohio. It's that lovely light rain that just keeps coming down, not heavy, just steady. Exactly what we've needed...or rather our lawns and flowers and trees have needed. Hubby and I just came in from a short trip to the local Target store and I remarked on how his impatiens had "perked" up already from the rain. His comment was: "I watered them yesterday and every day before that, but God's watering does the trick." I love Sundays, especially rainy day Sundays.

Nothing better comes to mind than curling up with a good book in a cozy chair. I'm half-way through reading True Believer by Nicholas Sparks. A close friend gave me At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks last year for my birthday. She knows I love his writing. I'd missed getting True Believer, so it was my present to myself for getting a contract for Hit and Run. I should be working on Joshua's Hope, which I'm gearing toward the White Rose line. I truly planned to work on it today, but God's drink of life has touched me and I think I'm just going to enjoy the rest of the afternoon reading.

Uh-oh. The sun just came out. **sigh** I think I'll just grab my AlphaSmart--but I'm still gonna curl up in that comfy chair. God and I just compromised.

Your compromise still sounded pretty good :)
