Rain can remind us of many things.

We can feel miserable about the weather and pledge to never go outside.

We can take an umbrella with us in the hope of remaining dry and untouched.

We can ensure that we walk carefully, so that we don’t slip on the wet paths.

We can consider our garden that gratefully soaks up every drop.

We can listen and contemplate the very blessings of God.

The same stimulus, but a wide range of responses.

There are many aspects of life that can either make us miserable, give us reason to protect ourselves, have us walk with care, help us to be grateful or feel blessed.

It’s not the event itself, it’s how we perceive it.
