What's in a raindrop?
Raindrops are magical to me, they have a force and power that is very evident if you have ever been caught in a downpour, but a single raindrop is like a little jewel glistening as the light catches it.
A single raindrop can encompass a whole world of thoughts and fill you with a sense of wonder and expectation. As a child i would spend ages watching the raindrops slowly run down the window pane. Wondering if it would twist or turn or bump into another drop ? My Sister and I would spend a while racing raindrops as they rolled freely along the window or even on the windscreen of our Father's car, hoping I picked the winning one!
In the UK we all need more rain as hosepipe bans have been put in place already this year. But as many pray for more rain we need to be aware that we should be actually praying in thanks for all the rain we are receiving. To pray for more indicates to the universe a lack of something and therefore in praying for it you reinforce that ideal. So to pray in thanks for the abundance of it, brings it in abundance.
So back to magical raindrop, as a child I was fascinated by water and would spend long hours trying to figure out how to touch it. Actually have you tried that ? It doesn't feel of anything does it? I've been drawn to rivers, lakes and the ocean too where the force of water is very visible. However my awe, wonder and fascination all started with the humble raindrop.
