When it's Raining

It's dreary outside. The rain is coming down lightly and the sky is full of clouds laden with rain, gray and thick. The earth almost seems to be curling in on itself despite the life-giving rain. The leaves have mostly fallen and lay scattered on the ground. The garden has long since stopped producing and lays its head down defeated by the chill.

And I wonder.

I wonder at the mysteries of all this. Because, despite teaching my children about the seasons and the wind, the rain and the cold... I know so little. I wonder if deep therein there are greater secrets still. Under the ground where we do not go, and up and away where the birds spend their days. Far to the north and under the deepest parts of the sea.

It all seems so immense and great.

So, I strive to teach my children to look and see what isn't obvious. To look for the mystery. To see what isn't visible. Because it's there right under the surface.

God everywhere. 

God in everything.

"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?  They are higher than the heavens--what can you do? They are deeper than the depths of the grave--what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea." Job 11:7-9


  1. I think it helps our faith tremendously to realize how much unknown there is. And yes, that includes the weather! What a great lesson to teach your children.

  2. Wow melissande, this gave me chills. Absolutely beautiful.

  3. Amazing post! God IS in everything, even if we don't see it immediately.
