Five Minute Friday: Rain

It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with other writers. We are given a one-word prompt, and we get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is Rain.


I live in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. We rarely get rain. When it does rain, it's usually during the monsoon season. This occurs late summer into September. And when it rains, it pours! The result is flooding since the ground can't absorb it quickly enough.

But I still love rain. The temperature drops and the wind picks up. It's a rare occurrence,

Every morning in my preschool class, we sing a song about the weather.

'What's the weather? What's the weather? What's the weather like today? Is it sunny? Is it cloudy? Is it windy or is there rain?"

Ninety-nine percent of the time, the response is sunny. But once in a while, it rains. The children love to say that and then run to the window to look out. They stand on their tippy toes peering out the window to see the rain with their own eyes.

But one of my favorite things about the rain is the rainbow that follows. It reminds me of God's promise to Noah in the Bible after the flood.

"I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds, and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life." Genesis 9:13-15

Thank you, Lord, for the rain.


Blessings and love,
