Who knew that the Sun makes noises we hear with our own ears?
Listen to Sounds of the sun
Weather with You
Listen to the sounds of weather around you today.
Do you hear the wind today?
Can you hear a gentle breeze, rustling the leaves in trees, or a whistling wind dancing over the rooftops or a howling wind rolling down the valley or waves crashing on a beach?
Do you hear the rain today? Can you hear the soft pitter patter of a delicate spring shower, a drenching downpour as the skies open, a rhythmical beat on your window panes?
Do you hear the sun today? Can you hear the boards of your house creaking as they start to dry in the warmth of the spring day or the buzzing of the warmth of a sunny day.
The sounds of weather are with us every day.
We don’t always stop to notice.
We don’t always stop to listen..
We don’t always understand the noises we hear are caused by the weather.
We take weather for granted.
It is with us every day.
We might notice an exceptionally good weather or an exceptionally bad weather day, but in between are hundreds of ordinary weather days.
Pause right now and take notice of the weather today.
Use all of your senses to observe, but pay particular attention to listening to the sounds of weather.
Now pause to ponder how noticing the weather can feel a bit the same as the way we notice God at work in our lives.
You might like to turn your ponderings into a prayer.
Enjoy this video of the hymn "We Praise You For The Sun."
"We Praise You For The Sun.'
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 Her hand.
Each Wednesday we send out an inspirational message.
