Singing in the Rain

 As Northern California has been hammered by inclement weather, I've had the opportunity to enjoy one of my favorite pastimes: singing in the rain.
 Our car is temporarily out of commission, which means we have little choice but to brave the cold, windy, rainy streets of Petaluma as we seek to do the Lord's work. Whenever it's particularly dark, cold, or difficult as we brave the elements, I've found that singing is a wonderful antidote.  Next time you are riding your bike in the rain (which, unless you're a missionary, is a peculiar thing to be doing by the way), just start singing "There is sunshine in my soul today!", and just try to keep a smile off your face.
  It never fails!  I always feel uplifted, comforted, and occasionally, even warm. The Lord loves music.  He's even told us so.
"For my soul adelighteth in the bsong of the cheart; yea, the dsong of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads." -D&C 25:12
 So next time you're cold and wet, just sing a little song.  The Lord will hear you.


  1. You are 100% correct about singing. It soothes the soul! Whenever I am feeling a little down, singing or humming quickly brings a smile and some much needed peace. Thank heaven we don't have to be a great singer to qualify for the blessing! :) Have a happy rainy day!

  2. Singing is so awesome. It seems like when ever there is something terrible going on, it will all change when ever you pray and sing!
