The Rain Dance


God’s Thoughts to Me

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass; it is about dancing in the rain (Author unknown).

The Rhythm of Rain


Listening to the rain
dancing, living, singing
hearing only
a tantalizing
nature song

A symphony of Love
urging total union
of body and body
of soul and soul
of my God and me

Much love and sweet blessings.


Linking-up with








I live in a small seaside town on the south-east coast of South Africa. I suffer from fybromyalgia/constant fatigue syndrome. I trust in the Lord Jesus for grace and strength to survive from day to day. He provides me with this and more and I therefore like to try and encourage others with the same illness. I am married and I am the proud mother of two grown sons.

    1. Dear Jedidja
      The sound of rain falling on a roof or against a window is so soothing. Glad you have a bit of a break in the heat.
