Rainy Days and Fridays Always Calm Me Down

Jun 7, 2013 | god & grace | 1 comment

I wish you were here with me, right this very moment. I am sitting on one of the face-to-face gliders on our pretty screen porch. Straight ahead are the woods that line the Cope’s yard; the trees form a wall of Early June Green that wraps around the corner of the porch, along the edge of our small cove, then continue around behind me, a protective (and comforting) cocoon. Moment to moment the wind pushes up through those branches, rustling the leaves in gentle, choreographed waves. The colors sweep from light to dark to light again, the tall elms sway.

It is as if the world is in slow motion.

And it is raining. A quiet, gentle rain that provides a perfect percussive backdrop for the songbirds—a cacophony so layered I need merely close my eyes and I am there, deep, deep in the rainforest.

And now, the call of a mourning dove.

Summer will be here soon, the heat of summer, blinding, relentless, exhausting. This I know.

But for now, here in this peaceful place, all the world feels lush and green and growing.

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
