This Minnesota girl is ready to get back to her land of water! Sitting and staring at the water brings calm. It brings awe. It points to the Creator God in a way I can't explain. And it's plain good for the soul.
But lets add some fun to that. Water brings joy. Whether tubing, speeding around, or simply floating in the middle of a lake, boating across the lake stirs up a giddiness in me that I just love. There's a freedom. It's letting the worries of the day go. And it's allowing a smile and laughter to burst forth at any minute for any reason.
On those days, though, where it's not so sunny and the idea of being out on the lake isn't so welcomed, I must say I yearn for those rainstorms. The scent of rain as the storm approaches. Splashing in puddles. Dancing in the rain with arms outstretched. Laying in bed while the thunder cracks and the lightning flashes. Listening to the downpour on the roof. It's a reminder that God provides everything we need in His own time and in His own way.
So, Minnesota...Land of 10,000 Lakes. It's time to focus on the element you do best. WATER!!
