Glimpses of Glory in Lent - Day 28

Rainbow over Wolverhampton

Rain can be life-giving when it falls on fields and waters crops.
Rain can be life-threatening when it causes floods.
Rain can be refreshing when it falls after a hot dry season.
Rain can be energy sapping when it beats down on me relentlessly as I am walking to a destination.

So many things in life are like this. A mixture of good and bad, of benefit and challenge.

In "Rain" Stephen Cherry reminds me to pray for those who are feeling the benefit and to pray for those who are being challenged.

And I am reminded that some are tracing rainbows through the rain.
