I woke up to the sound of rain on the eaves this morning. It's a "soft day", as we used to say, of mist and drizzle. Perfect spring weather to wash away the grit of end-of-winter, and to encourage the crocuses, snowdrops and other early flowers.
Give thanks for this gentle rain and pray for those for whom it is a hardship. Give thanks for God's mercy "which droppeth like the gentle rain", to quote Mr. Shakespeare.
