rainy days..time to play

"These children are even as young plants, and teaching them the prayers is as letting the rain pour down upon them, that they may wax tender and fresh, and the soft breezes of the love of God may blow over them, making them to tremble with joy."

  ~ Abdu'l-Baha


rain showers remind me of God's bounty pouring boundlessly upon all of creation, just as prayers enable them to draw from His limitless ocean of guidance..

as soon as the rain pours down, our kids start running around -- looking for their bathing suits if it's warm outside -- and preparing as quickly as possible so as not to miss a moment with the might and dominion of God..

dancing and singing on the basketball court

shooting hoops and making rain angels

it's even more fun in underwear
 we especially enjoy the dark clouds and the heavy rains..


we feel invigorated and excited when the rains are cool..

our children love to play, swim, and take walks in the rain..
