Rain falls ever so softly at times. Rain falls softly at times as if gently washing away the stresses of the day. Rain feels like it’s from God to wash away the sins of this world. Rain; but it touches my heart in a way I sense a removing of stains from my soul! Pure and perfect falling softly upon me soothing my mind and body, then at times fast and hard as if warning not everything can be washed away.   
Once soaked nothing is left untouched or unclean! Fresh like an orchid and pure as the lotus; nature in all its’ glory is nourished from Gods’ delicate rain as it falls ever so softly and my soul is renewed. Water can soften the hardest of all earths’ elements from smoothing rocks it flows over to putting out raging fires. Rain fills and nourishes from the smallest of God’s creatures to the largest imaginable so cleanse my soul as it rains down upon me, I believe it does!     
Bathed by God’s water and cleansed as part of nature’s blend, storms hold no concern for my hearts not heavy and my burdens light! Freed from stress and washed clean from the sins of this world, I walk with God. My soul shall be as the orchid and shall float gently about like the lotus.   
Rain may fall again to wash away the stresses that find their way to me and gently continue renewing my soul. My heart finds strength and courage as love fills every crack and jagged edge that became scares from this world having been gently soaked by Gods’ rain! Renewed and thankful for what has come down upon me, I’ll say a prayer and forever feel blessed for rain has fallen ever so softly and washed away the stresses of the day and cleansed my soul of the sins of the world!
