As Rain Falls {Five Minute Friday}

You’ve heard it said that “one drop in the pond doesn’t make much difference,” but another perspective is if those individual drops didn’t show up, there wouldn’t be a pond.

I’m listening to the rain fall; it sounds a vigorous as a mountain waterfall this morning.

The plants soak up the wet goodness, the leaves and grass turn greener already, and the ground gulps the water like a kid after racing his hardest outside with friends on a sweltering summer day.

One drop of rain might not make a huge different to that tomato plant in the ground desperate for moisture, but it helps.

And a pure, soaking rain takes many drops working together.

And, I think: we each have our choices to make on what we do with what we have available to give.

Mother Theresa says, “We can do no great things; only small things with great love.”

What would happen if so many more of us did our part and choose goodness and kindness and love over all else?

What kind of effect could we have if we poured His love down on thirsty souls, and we did it together?

“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.” Mother Teresa 

The rain strengthens now, but this morning what I hear falling is peaceful, soak-you-through-to-the-heart love.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:14-16

What kindness and goodness can you pour out today, or what kindness has fallen on you?

    Oh, this is lovely! Mother Theresa and her quotes truly speak to my heart. Thank you for sharing this – it made my Friday!

    Amen! Love this! You painted such a beautiful picture, and I love rain anyways. This was a refreshing read. It is actually right up my alley and like something I would be inclined to ponder on myself :). What would happen if we all took the time to pour love on to one another is that the world would be a much happier place. Trials exist no matter what, but the love and support of others makes life so much more wonderful..I bet there would be less loneliness, illness, fighting, and all of the negatives out there. One drop of water makes a difference. Keep making a difference out there! ;). Stopping by from FMF> Love the verse too btw. ~Rebekah @

      I enjoy a peaceful rain, too, Rebekah. Imagine what would happen if i, one lone raindrop, even acted in love as Christ did even 80% of the time… so much would be better then, too!

      Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a thoughtful comment.
