Bring On the Rain

I'm not a big fan of Country music, never have been, probably never will be. But, there are a few Country songs I like and enjoy listening to.  This is probably my favorite.  Every time I hear it it makes me think.  It reminds me that no matter what happens. No matter how far I am buried under the pile of things I have to do, or the discouragements or happenings of everyday life.  No matter what happens to just keep pressing on.  I might be in the torrential downpour of life. But I need to rain that comes from heaven and refreshes my soggy soul.   I need to remember that no matter what happens to keep looking up. To not worry and fret.  To stand still, hold out my arms and allow the goodness, peace and love of God to rain on me.

Bring on the Rain - Jo Dee Messina
Another day has almost come and gone
Cant imagine what else could wrong
Sometimes I'd like to hide away somewhere and lock the door
A single battle lost but not the war

Tomorrow's another day
And I'm thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain

Its almost like the hard times circle round
A couple drops and they all start coming down
Yeah, I might feel defeated,
I might hang my head
I might be barely breathing - but I'm not dead

Tomorrow's another day
And I'm thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain

I'm not gonna let it get me down
I'm not gonna cry
And I'm not gonna lose any sleep tonight

this song brings back MAJOR memories. My family spent one fall/winter building up a little house out back behind ours for my grandpa, and this song was super popular on the radio at the time. I think I still remember every word.....
