Gentle Spring Rain

Behold, God is great, and we know him not, 
neither can the number of his years be searched out.
for he maketh small the drops of water:
they pour down rain according to the vapor thereof;
which the clouds do drop
and distill upon man abundantly.
Job 36:26-27

In high school my history teacher Janet Eisendrath taught the Book of Job as literature.  I have always cherished the way she opened a world of beauty and meaning to us with that class; and I have approached the Bible in very much the same way that she taught ever since.  This verse from Job enhances my experience of today's Spring rain.
