Two Things

Thing One: I absolutely love the sound of rain on the roof while I'm in bed at night.  It is such an incredibly soothing sound.  Last night, it poured, and I reminisced about childhood days camping with my family when it would rain while we were all in the tent together.

I think this is the first place Tim and I have lived where you can actually clearly hear the sound of those many drops hitting the top of our house.  Home 1 was a high-rise apartment, and we weren't on the top floor.  Home 2 was a main-floor apartment in a house with two floors above us.  Home 3 was a townhouse with an attic.  Here, there is no attic, so I get the full effect of every downpour, to the point of being able to hear the water trickle its way through the shingles to the eavestroughs. 

Thing Two: The view outside my kitchen is becoming more and more beautiful every day.  And by view, I mean the birch tree.  I've said it before, and I'll say it again, spring is my favorite time of year.  I am loving that I get to watch this tree wake up from the dead of winter.  The leaves on it get bigger every day, and slowly I see more and more green dressing those lovely white branches.

"Shout with joy to God, all the earth!
Sing the glory of his name;
make his praise glorious!
Say to God, 'How awesome are your deeds!'" Psalm 66:1-3a

This is a great post. We are loving all the shades of green outside our window this spring. With all the rain it is looking very lush. I'm so glad you have a tree outside your window. :) ~mum
