Grace like rain

Ya know those days that just need a reset button? Or an easy button? Or a go-away-and-never-come-back-button? Yeah, that’s today.

A project for work has consumed more time, brainpower, and sanity than any one project in one day should.  I’m stuck in a holding pattern on other projects because I’m waiting on other people.  I stink at math.  And checkbooks (no, the irony is not lost on my that I spent many years as a bookkeeper…and did it well).  It’s not even 5PM and I’d like to just go to bed and let the family rummage through the pantry and just feed themselves.  But there’s not a lot to choose from.  Because we’ve been on vacation.  And I didn’t do the best job with my grocery list Monday.  And I stink at math.

As I’m sitting in my big, comfy chair trying to will myself to finish working, an unexpected thunderstorm is coming through.  And this rain in beautiful.  And cleansing.  And refreshing.

And God softly spoke to my weary soul.

Like this generous summer rain, His grace rains down on this day.  And He reminds me that He knew what this day would hold.  And He know what I would need to survive it.  And there’s not only enough grace for today, but tomorrow, too.

I’m thankful for this rain today.  And even more thankful for the grace like rain falling down on me.
