Sweet Summer Rain

What a refreshing moment after a long hot day, when the afternoon pouring rain hits, I stop everything I am doing and sit on my couch for a few moments just to watch and hear the sound of a good soaking rain.

When I am traveling and it rains, the washed out roads and the steam coming out dissolving the landscape look so beautiful to me.

And last... After the rain... there comes the sun up in the sky awakening the right seeds in well-prepared soils... I hope (pray) that the soil of your heart is ready enabling fruitful seeds to grow in the days ahead or to realize the value of the fruits that you already have in your life. Have a blessed weekend.

very nice pictures Cris..
Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth;
without rain, there would be no life.
The second pictures show blue flowering trees. Do you know their name?

Have a wonderful weekend.

I especially love that last picture!

I do appreciate a nice, cozy rainy day. But you know, about this time of year up here in Oregon, I start to want to have anything but rain. And in fact, I just posted about a rare tornado that touched down very close by!

I think I'm dreaming of sunny skies and palm trees right now...:)

Great pictures, Cris. I enjoy the warm rainy summer pictures. Here it is cold and rainy and no leafs on the trees.
Nice to read the other posts ( I not commented)!

Cris we finally got our first snow this morning. I doubt it will last long but it was pretty while it lasted.

Sharing your joy in the rain and all the rest of nature is one of the absolute delights of blogging :)
Yes, rain can be very beautiful.
I'm curious about the flowering trees along the road.
What a gorgeous photo of the sky!
I almost expect to hear God's voice booming down to us from that one!
