"Let's run through the rain!" She
"No, honey. We'll wait until it slows
down a bit," Mom replied.
This young child waited about another
minute and repeated,
"Mom, let's run through the rain."
"We'll get soaked if we do," Mom said.
"No, we won't, Mom. That's not what you said this morning,"
the young girl said as she tugged at her Mom's arm.
"This morning? When did I say we
could run through the rain and not get wet?"
"Don't you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his
cancer, you said, 'If God can get us through this, he can get
us through anything!'"
The entire crowd stopped dead silent. I swear you couldn't
hear anything but the rain. We all stood silently. No one came
or left in the next few minutes.
Mom paused and thought for a moment
about what she would say.
Now some would laugh it off and scold her for being silly.
Some might even ignore what was said. But this was a moment of
affirmation in a young child's life. A time when innocent
trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith.
Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain.
If God let's us get wet, well maybe we just needed washing,"
Mom said. Then off they ran. We all stood watching, smiling
and laughing as they darted past the cars and yes, through the
puddles. They held their shopping bags over their heads just
in case. They got soaked. But they were followed by a few who
screamed and laughed like children all the way to their cars.
And yes, I did. I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.
Circumstances or people can take away
your material possessions, they can take away your money, and
they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away
your precious memories...
So, don't forget to make time and
take opportunities to make memories everyday..
To everything there is a season and
a time to every purpose under heaven.
I HOPE YOU STILL

RUN THROUGH THE RAIN.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour
to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire
life to forget them. Send this to the people you'll never
forget and remember to also send it to the person who sent it
to you. It's a short message to let them know that you'll
never forget them. If you don't send it to anyone, it means
you're in a hurry. Take the time to live!!!
Keep in touch with your friends,
you never know when you'll need each other
and don't forget to run in the rain.
