in love with the rain.

When I was little, I was absolutely, positively terrified of thunderstorms. I'd get so nervous at that first sound of thunder, and I'd constantly ask my parents "Are we gonna have a tornado, are we gonna be ok??" I wouldn't leave my parents' side, and if it stormed during the night I'd either go to their room, or fall back asleep holding onto one of my stuffed wolves for dear life.
Now, all these years later, you wanna know what one of my absolute favorite things in the world is? Thunderstorms. :) And today, we're having our first one of the year. I love the smell in the air as the thunder is rumbling in the distance, and tiny drops of rain make their way down from the darkened clouds. I love getting cozied up either inside with the windows open, or on the porch, and listening to the birds singing along with the thunder. I love, I love, I love. With a warm, fuzzy feeling. Because winter is over and done, and a new aspect of God's beauty is springing up, as the world comes back to life.
In a happy place. :)

  1. I love thunder storms, always have, the louder and windier the better! =)

  2. Same with me, I used to be super scared, but now thunder is my favorite thing. I think it reminds me that God is there, and that He is powerful and watches over me:)
    Winter isn't done here in Minnesota:( but spring is coming!

  3. I've always been fascinated by them, it feels as if all the evil in the world will be washed away.


  4. I love thunderstorms...and rain...and lightning...
    You'd love Oregon, Lauren;)

  5. Well I found a difference between you and me now. I have always and will always hate storms. I love rain, but not storms. Suprisingly though it isn't the lightening that bothers me, it's the thunder. And wouldn't you know it, but it's storming now :( and no Chad here to comfort me!!

  6. Aww love this! Rain is a beautiful thing :)
