HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE RAIN?

Watching and listening to a summer’s gentle rainfall on the lake is so restorative.
Children around the world take great delight in splashing through puddles during a rainfall.
To many people rainfalls are uplifting, invigorating and soothing.

I uploaded the following video to YouTube on November 2, 2012 for this blog ~


There have been hundreds of popular songs written about the rain – for example: ‘Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head‘; ‘Dancing In the Rain’ and most recently “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” performed by Phillip Phillips on American Idol.

 ~ Do you know how rain actually is formed? ~

The drops or ice crystals, in the form of cloud, become so heavy that the air cannot hold them up and they fall to the ground as rain… Since rain provides fresh water making the rivers flow, filling lakes and keeping plants alive, it is very significant. We cannot imagine our life without water ~ excerpt from The Benefits of Rain by Michael C Miller ~ http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Benefits-of-Rain&id=4795042

 ~ Interesting Cultural attitudes towards rain ~

Rain can bring joy, as some consider it to be soothing or enjoy the aesthetic appeal of it.
In dry places, such as India, or during periods of drought rain lifts people’s moods.
In temperate climates, people tend to be more stressed when the weather is unstable or cloudy.
In Botswana, the Setswana word for rain, “pula”, is used as the name of the national currency, in recognition of the economic importance of rain in this desert country
People find the scent during and immediately after rain pleasant or distinctive. The source of this scent is petrichor, an oil produced by plants, absorbed by rocks and soil, and later released into the air during rainfall –   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rain

I know you’ll enjoy the following rendition of “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?”, performed by Phillip Phillips, American Idol’s 11th season finale winner this year.

The following comments are from http://www.lacarte.org/songs/rain/

  Take along stroll down memory lane, no matter what your era or your preferred style of music, browsing almost 800 song titles relating to rain and rainy things, including over 50 named just ‘Rain.’ You will  probably be surprised how many of these songs from American popular culture you know.
.
This is not an attempt to catalog every possible song that merely happens to make a passing reference to rain, as so many do apparently because it’s the first thing the authors think of to rhyme with ‘pain.’ There are, in fact, according to off siteThe Muze (muze.com), over 5,000 albums containing at least one song with the word ‘rain’ in their title, just since 1960. The Virtual Flood, by contrast, hopes only to cover those songs which are likely to be known by wide audiences, and are significantly involved with rain, whether the word is in their title or not.

Philip De Franco is Discovery Channel’s host for Shark Week, 2012 and was asked, Why are we so fascinated with sharks? “Sharks are the last ‘wild’ thing. The power and the general awesomeness make them near the top of the food chain, and there is something interesting in all of that.”  “They’re smooth. They’re iconic. They’re a lot of species,” De Franco says of sharks. “They’re just awesome.”

THE BEAUTY OF A MOTHER’S LOVE


A  Mother’s Day Tribute from your friends at Rainsoft Ottawa!

  Have a wonderful day and enjoy the video!

Heart of a Mother – The Beauty of a Mother’s Love”

 
An excerpt from Heart of a Mother by Paula J. Fox.  Mothers are also a lot LIKE flowers in many ways… As the heart of a Mother grows and blossoms in beauty and grace, she spreads her fragrance of LOVE not only in her home, but throughout her world…
 

Baby’s Breath
Our first flower reminds us of the very beginning of a woman’s life as a Mother…the moment when she takes her first child into her arms and smells the fragrance of that sweet Baby’s Breath. Her heart will never be the same again.

Lilac
The Lilac represents the fragrance of a Mother’s sacrifice…the lovely scent of forgiveness that results when a flower is crushed and gives back to the very one that crushed it. It reminds us of the beauty that surrounds a Mother who is always willing to forgive her children’s faults and offer them compassion, mercy and unconditional love.

Hydrangea
The Hydrangea has a wonderful quality of being able to change color from shades of pink to blue. Initially it was thought that this flower was like a chameleon, changing color to match its surroundings, but experiments proved that the color is actually determined by the roots of the plant and the kind of soil it is planted in. This illustrates the Mother who gives her children a rich foundation of love and deep roots of character and strength.

Mac Anderson, Founder of Simple Truths, speaking with Paula Fox – “She said the speech is called The Heart of a Mother…The Beauty of a Mother’s Love. “However, what makes it unique is that I compare a mother’s love to 30 different flowers… each symbolic of the love a mother has for her child.”
