We have reached the end of the year! Today’s rain reminds us of our blessings (rain is a symbol of God’s blessings…since without it we have no life). So we thank God for all the new friends we have, the new things we did, the new things we learned. It’s been a year filled with blessings! Our cup runs over. God has downpoured graces into our lives. Thanks be to God. The rain also washes away all the bad things, the bad days we had last year. Rain does that….it purifies and cleanses away the ugly and blesses us with the beautiful. Thanks be to God for a wonderful year!
