Swinging in the rain

It is rainy season in Haiti. The past two weeks have brought a good deal of rain. We have a leaky roof that reminds us of all those living under pieces of tin, tarp, and tents. We pray for those and count our blessings. We are missing our loved ones back home very much and dream about the day we will see them again…

…though circumstances have leaked into our lives that may prolong that day. 

We think about all our loved ones here in Haiti and that many of these will never ever leave this little island. 

We count our blessings once again. 

There is still much rubble all around us.
There is also much new construction, removal of trash, recycling efforts, and fewer tents. We are thankful we were able to see Haiti a few months after the earthquake so that we can share in the joy of how far she has come. 

When the rains come it is easy to forget how far we have come. 

We can stay inside, try to stop the leaks from coming and miserably endure…
…we can count our blessings, and go out and dance in the rain. 

We can sing in the rain with the joy built up in our hearts. 

We even often swing in the rain. 

And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the rains came down and the floods came up, 
and the house on the rock stood firm.
Matthew 7:25
