Reflections of the Soul!

Today is a rainy day and as Josh, I like the rain! The sky is gray with a promise of a thunderstorm. I don't care if I get wet.

Rain refreshes. Rain renews. Rain lulls me to sleep. Rain greens the trees and grass. Rain waters the flowers to burst into bloom. The bright yellow petals of crocus are peeking at me. The forsythia bush outside my bedroom window will blossom first, then leaves can emerge. Rain brings rainbows and a pot of gold. Rain sprinkles the ground to release scents of the earth.

The mountains are playing hide and seek with the clouds. The wind swirls the clouds in dizzy circles. Snow blankets the mountains with powder and athletes race with delight.

The Vernal Equinox opens Spring on 20 Mar. Easter resurrects belief in family, friends, and faith. Daylight brightens longer into night. Animal babies will frolic in play.

I'm "itching" for the snow to melt and temperatures to rise so mines and tailings will reveal mysteries to me. Crystals glitter in the sunlight, gold and silver strands to find, and ores to seek.

As I watch the storm through my window at work, no longer do the mountains see through the veil of gray. Rain pounds above my head.

For me brings the peace, quiet, and serenity!
