Like A Refreshing Rain
If you live in Southeast Idaho you couldn't miss the smoke covering the valley. Hazy, dirty, smoky. Then in the afternoon the clouds opened & it downpoured. The rain cleared away all that filthiness. The air was fresh, crisp, & clean. Everything was brighter and bolder. The grass was greener, the sky was bluer, the grain fields were more golden. Life was good & beautiful. It was a fitting scene for a Sunday and I couldn't help but think of how going to church & taking the sacrament is like a refreshing rain. The grit and garbage that we're exposed to everyday is washed away. I haven't been able to make it to church very often lately because I've been working so much on Sundays. I'll be so glad when I'll be able to quit working Sundays & go to church for that weekly refresher. Life will be bolder, brighter, & more beautiful and that feeling of all that will carry me through the week. Until then I'll try to make the best of it and remember my prayers & scriptures and soon my life will be refreshed like after a good rainstorm.
