"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."
The rain was falling gently and cooling off the hot summer day. I was thankful for its presence, and the trees, flowers and other plants were benefiting from its nourishing effect.
This gentle rain was a giver. It asked nothing in return. Yet everything growing in the soil would flourish because of its nourishing power.
It made me wonder . . .
Do I have a nourishing impact on those I come into contact with?
Do I freely share my gifts to help others flourish?
Do I do so with no expectations of a return?
How can I become like the rain? How can I provide a gentle, nourishing strength?
Take the time to be like the rain . . . a gentle, yet nourishing presence in the lives of others.
