Running in the rain

Today.....well I was so not into going back to school after spring break and literally wanted to kill the alarm clock at 6am but I eventually rolled out of bed. Needles to say I made it to school which started out ok, got better, then pretty good, then pretty that was school.....nothing new there. Then I went out to walk to my car and realized it was pouring rain. Of course I then had to go to Pennys to make an exchange, drive into the city to drop off a job application, drive into greece to drop off my car to get fixed, go to another store, and lastly get a coffee on the way home. It wasn't the driving that was on my mind however: it was all that running in the rain. In and out, down the street, across a crowed parking lot I ran. The huge drops of water spilling down my arms, soaking my shirt, I was freezing.... and at the same time I was having the time of my life. It was fun you know, once I let it be.......It reminded me of when I was a kid and took every chance possible to run in the rain.
You know, sometimes we let the rain in our life become a trial, a hardship, a depressor. I wonder if sometimes we need to just look at it like a blessing in disguise, just focus on the all the happiness and run through the rain:-)
That's my thoughts for the day........
Oh yeah and I got a hug from a complete stranger........apparently he had received some of my biscotti.....I guess if I ever want a hug I should just start baking for random

1 Corinthians 13

1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
