So here's to the rain, the glorious rain which gives us life, makes all living plant life beautiful, holds down the dust and allows the clean air to blow unfettered and is one of the most important things that God provides us in our natural environment. Oh, it makes the barn chores a bit messy sometimes with the horses muddy and a bit ornery from being wet, and sometimes the air smells musty during an extended rain due to the impact of the nearby swamp, but the rain is glorious and critical to all that we do. We must always remember that.
And it also affords me more free time to write, something that I love to do. Maybe today I'll write a story about that pesky coyote that keeps my Mountain Boys busy or perhaps I'll write a rebuttal to the last newspaper article which just came out praising Plum Creek's City in the Swamp plan. And, of course, the opportunity to watch the natural changes in nature day-by-day also affords a great reason to write a piece about how God gives us those things we need despite our taking them all for granted. Whatever the choice, I can't miss a good chance to write even if for no other reason than to continue honing my skills, for it is a never ending work in progress to attain the level that I want.
What about you? Throw yourself into whatever endeavor you have, be it work, hobby or avocation. Do the best at it that you can and, at the end of the day, when the sun just might start peeking through with the bright cheerfulness that it brings, you'll feel better about yourself for it.
Have a great Monday, folks, and always remember the One who made you. He is the reason for our being. God bless you all and enjoy your wet Monday and I'll get back in the political mode tomorrow for sure. See ya.
