Simple Pleasure ~ rainy days

Whether it be a refreshing rain after a hot summer day or a spring rain watering the long lost green grass and beautiful flowers we have missed under all that snow from a cold winter.... I LOVE a rainy day

wearing comfy sweats, reading a book, putting on a pot of homemade soup.....YES, I LOVE a rainy day ♥

and even more than that...after the rain....always comes a Rainbow ~ Gods promise! :)

God continued, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I'm putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth." Gen 9:12-14

Won't you join me today by linking up here



We had an unexpected rain shower yesterday afternoon and I did snuggle into my favorite chair and read! Wishing you a wonderful day Loren.

A Hopeful Heart

I am visiting from the Simple Pleasures link Party. You are the name after mine, and I always try to visit the names on either side of mine.

How interesting that you and Dayle both are celebrating the beauty of rain today. I LOVE rain. I used to take it for granted, but now that I live in a desert climate, where we get very little precip., I cherish each day of rain we DO get. I especially love a summer rain storm (they are VERY infrequent, however).

Have a lovely day,
Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)


Beautiful pictures and words. Thanks for sharing.

Love the new Autumn blog design. So cute. My favorite season by far. Blessings!


I love a rainy day too, and you captured it perfectly with sweats,books, and hot soup. Makes for a perfect day. :)

Hope your having a blessed day.


I'm right there with you on spending it in the sweats and with soup! I love a rainy day too, and we don't have nearly as many as we need most of the time in these parts.

And how beautiful is that rainbow picture that you found? I need to show that to my husband.


Lovin' the rain! Love pots of soup on the stove and hot coffee!! Love fires in the fireplace and comfy clothes!! Curled up on the couch with a good book!! AWE!!!

Love you!!


I am desperately craving a rainy day. I hope one comes soon! They're certainly good for the soul!

And I'm also with you on the rainbows. I love the reminder of God's promises. Whenever it does rain and there is a bit of sunshine I'm like a crazy person searching for that rainbow.

A simple pleasure, indeed!


Kindred spirits, girlfriend. Love this.


You are a girl after my own heart--I love rainy days--always have! Yes, give me my Kindle--I know some people like the "real thing" but I've read 3 or 4 times as many books since I've had the Kindle, a cup of coffee and my living room sofa--snuggle in.......


wow what a beautiful picture of the rainbow!! Love this!!


Hi! I found your blog through "A Collection of This and That" and just love it already! I live in the NW and so rain is something we see A LOT of. :-) But, it makes us appreciate the sun all that much more and I love getting to share with our kiddos about God's wisdom and creativity in establishing seasons (a verse I just recently rediscovered in Genesis!). I would love it if you would consider joining my "Inspiration Friday" party over at my blog. It is a great way to share everything from scripture to home decorating and recipes and everything in between!
Blessings to you,
P.S. I'm a new follower!


Great rainy day Simple Pleasures post - I love a rainy day just hanging out!
