A Rainy Day

I don’t understand people on rainy days.

Why do they drive faster when it’s raining? As if the roads aren’t dangerous enough when the ground is dry, they choose to take a risk with wet roads. And then, they run from car to store, from store to car as if the rain will melt them like the Wicked Witch of the West. Why? Rain is refreshing, not disastrous. I actually like to stand outside in the rain for no reason other than to be rained on.

Then there’s the attitude of the rainy day. People mope around like rain is the worst thing that ever happened to them. I do not understand this attitude. Rainy days are absolutely awesome. Especially if there’s thunder and lightning involved. It’s a natural cleansing of the earth. People should rejoice in the fact that the earth is being refreshed. The same way we need water in order to survive, so does the planet on which we live. And the reward of this lovely rain is the beauty of nature; flowers, trees, grass, all manner of foliage need rain to survive. Rain means renewal.

Therefore, enjoy rainy days and thank God for the refreshing.

Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”  (Genesis 9:16 NIV)

ESTHER LOPRESTO

I am first and foremost a Scribe of the King. It is my desire to serve God through the written word. I have been creating stories since age three. I would tell them to entertain my family, but didn’t start writing them down until age eight or nine.

Since then, the need to write has been insatiable. At age nineteen, I had my first book, Where’s My Other Sock?, published by Tate Publishing. Then, I graduated from community college with a degree; not in anything writing related, but in accounting. Currently, I’m hunting for a bookkeeping job and working on several books or story ideas. In my stories, I challenge the reader’s imagination with adventures into the fantasy realm. Some stories lean towards mystery/suspense or general fiction, and I try to write for all ages. I find my inspiration from JRR Tolkien’s works and from the Randomness of everyday life.
