caught in the rain

I love rain.

I love watching lightning dance across the horizon and hearing thunder roll across the sky. A friend and I did just that the other night; we lay on the bed with the lights out and curtains open, watching the artistry of the heavens. Unforgettable moments.

I guess I can't really make the blanket statement that I love rain. Cause it's not always true. I love rain when I'm not in it. When I can hear it, see it, smell it...without actually getting wet.

But today I got caught in a downpour, and I loved every minute of it. I stood with my arms outstretched, and spun around. I even jumped in the puddles. I was drenched to the bone.

But it wasn't with water...

Niel showered me with words from his heart.

The waterfall of his words rolled over me, covered me completely, until I felt I could hold no more. Wrung out, I knew I'd drip love.

And that's something my heart will hold onto for a long time... Will hold onto for a rainy day.
