Weather Report Singin’ in the Rain
I'm singing in the rain, just singin' in the rain
What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds so dark up above
The sun's in my heart and I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase everyone from the place
Come on with the rain, I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane with a happy refrain
Just singin', singin' in the rain
Lyrics from Singin’ in the Rain
There’s nothing like a bit of spring rain to grow the grass and turn every living thing green. Yet for all the goodness brought by spring rain, it is often associated with tears and sadness. Children the world over liken drops of rain from the sky with their own tears freely falling from their eyes. How many parents have marvelled at the words of wisdom from their pre-schooler who authoritatively states, ‘the sky is crying.’
Singin’ in the Rain has in more recent years attracted a new fan base with the stage show based on the 1952 movie. Tickets sold to the stage show often include complimentary rain ponchos for the first few rows to protect theatregoers from the spray of falling rain. Part of the fun for many is to obtain seats in the rain zone.
Weather with You
Finding hope amidst sadness is hard. It’s easier to watch a movie or show about singin’ in the rain than singing in the rain ourselves. Yet hope often breaks through our sadness when we least expect it, bringing a ray of sunshine into our gloom. It is often in the rainy days of our lives we get to see a glimpse of God at work.
Ponder times when you’ve felt sad and alone and you’ve felt a sense of God’s presence breaking through.
Whether it’s rainy or sunny outside, wrap yourself up and go outside for your Stroll.
You may even like to try a few dance steps or singing as you Stroll.

Video - Singing in the rain.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
