God's Magnifying Glass

Raindrops are...

...God's Magnifying Glass

We are busy getting ready for Rachel's birthday party tomorrow. We usually have her party later in May with hopes of warm weather. It has warmed-up and the sun finally came out yesterday. It's still shining today and we are all very happy about that.

I took these pictures yesterday before the sun came out. Isn't it amazing how each individual raindrop holds on to its assigned position? Each one disappears in due time. It made me think of this saying by Longfellow:

Be still sad heart and cease repining;
Behind the clouds the sun is shining,
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life a little rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary

And then I couldn't help but notice how those raindrops magnify the veins on the leaves and the peony bud. Aren't they just beautiful?

God sometimes uses raindrops in our own lives to magnify Himself.
