As a little girl, I loved to go outside during rain storms, and play in my bathing suit in the puddles. Rain was magical, fun, special. Clean, fresh.
Growing up, it remained the same. If it was raining, I was giddy and excited! It still is cause for excitement, joy, reflection and more.
After losing Michael, one song came to mind, often. Over and over!
Praise You In This Storm, by Casting Crowns. I'd loved it before hand, but afterwards, it seemed like it became my mantra. Even though I didn't 'feel' like praising, I knew one day I would. That I should. Please allow me to share the lyrics with you, below.
