wet stones

sudden cloudburst on 10/1/2011

I ran out for some alone time while all of my men were off at the LDS Priesthood session of general conference on Saturday night. After stepping into a little boutique for some browsing, the heavens opened and God sent shiny down upon us.

The cobblestones, the railings, the passing cars. Everything doused with rain and left cleaner than it had been just minutes before.

Like me. Renewed. Cleaner. Washed after the heavens had opened for me. Through living prophets' words.

I love those bi-annual cloudbursts, too. And that is a lovely picture.

I can't imagine you got a lot of alone time at the universal shopping time for Mormon women:) But the rain picture looks lovely!

What a great experience! I too love conference and the way it helps us renew our "innerself" and cleanse our souls :)

Love this all. Feels so good to be shined up and ready to soak it in.

Beautiful photo. What a perfect moment. I love the smell after the rain.

That's exactly what conference feels like. A soft rain while the sun is shining and then everything is even better.
