I love Houston rain. I don't know how it's different than any other rain, but it just makes me feel like I'm home.
It's a heavy, long lasting rain, and it sounds incredible landing on wood and stone.
I got outside during the hard rain that fell today, smoked a nice cigar, and listened to this Mark Driscoll sermon about the prophecies Jesus fulfilled on my iPod. It's a good one; I recommend it. (Actually, Driscoll's whole "Vintage Jesus" series is quite good.)
Anyways . . . I'm enjoying vacation right now. Blogging will be sporadic.
I hope you have a great holiday. Spend it with people you love, and if you can't do that, love the people you're spending it with. :-)
