People that love rain are called pluviophiles. The word pluviophile comes from the Latin word “pluvial,” which means rain, and “phile,” which denotes a thing or a person. Therefore, a pluviophile is a lover of rain, or someone that finds joy and peace of mind during the rainy days.
Thank You for the rolling dark grey clouds that sped across the sky today, exploding – sending a downpour lunging towards the earth. Thank You for the rain as it danced on the road and hurtled down the hill in torrents to join the swelling River Wear.
It was an outpouring of pure joy – a heady mix of adrenaline and, yet, the caress of comfort, contentment and peace. And now that the rain is spent, I can hear the rushing of the wind through the trees and I thank You for sending the wildness, Lord – just because You can.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
