The photo above, set as my featured image, does not belong to me, nor is it taken by me. It is Barefoot in the Rain by Anne Marthe Widvey, via Flickr.  It is said that when it rains God cries for our sins and in that way He washes us, He purifies us. I have always loved rain, I have never been afraid or uncomfortable, I have never backed out of rain. I rarely used an umbrella and when I did it was only to protect something important, like a book or some words on a paper. Not myself! I do not see rain as something to protect myself or run away...
