it smells like rain

we've been hearing thunder for the last couple days but no rain.
i had just been speaking with my mom on skype and mentioned how we hadn't had rain in a few days.
about an hour after i said this the skies opened up and rain poured down from the heavens.
i breathed in deep.
it smelled so good. earthy. wet. 
i grabbed my camera and went outside to find it smelled even better out there.
i thought to myself
i never want to forget this. 

to my delight, noah joined me and sat on the warm steps as we watched the rain come down.

can i go and run around in the rain, mom?

definitely. always and definitely.

Listen, you heavens, and I will speak;
hear, you earth, the words of my mouth.
Let my teaching fall like rain
and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants.

I will proclaim the name of the Lord.
Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
He is the rock, his works are perfect, 
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.
Deuteronomy 32:1-4


  1. Beautiful words, beautiful photos (awesome motion photo i love it you must tell me how!) I can almost smell the rain from here :)

  2. Me too!! I love the smell of warm rain (winter rain isn't nice here), and I couldn't stop watching Noah for about 4 rounds :)
    What an incredible backdrop for running around in the rain!!
