I am so thankful that it rained on our first day here. I know that sounds kind of strange, but there are two reasons that I say it. First, almost every memory I have of arriving or departing Chile coincides with rain. So it made for a comfortingly familiar feeling. Second, the rain washes away the smog and so for a couple of mornings afterwards, you see this beautiful sight … And oh, how I’ve missed this sight:
Psalm 121: 1,2
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
