If I am being honest, I never believed for a second that El Niño was a real thing. I mean, it’s California and it never rains. Droughts are something that we have grown to expect, but the weather man upstairs has proven me so, so wrong. Selfishly, I admit that almost every time it rains I sing to myself, “Rain Rain go away, come again another day!” Mostly because of frizzy hair struggles, muddy shoe prints on the tile entryway, and that feeling of wet dog when clothes are anything by dry and warm. However, I understand that we NEED water and I will put my desires aside and embrace the rain. Hence, I have collected five pairs of rain boots. Why? Because I am crazy, that’s why. And here I am on the first really rainy day of El Niño, drinking a coffee from Night Owl in Downtown Fullerton, and I am wearing glittery sneakers. No explanation here other than these slip-ons from Target matched my outfit better! Someday I’ll master the art of fashionable and functional, but until then, here are my outfit details!

Then the flood came upon the earth for forty days, and the water increased and lifted up the ark, so that it rose above the earth.
Faith is one of my spiritual gifts, however, I had no faith that El Niño would actually make an appearance. It’s hard for me to imagine how Noah must have felt when God told him to build an ark in preparation for 40 days and 40 nights of rain. Rain was unheard of before Noah, and flooding, what was that?! Nonetheless, Noah was faithful to God’s commands and look how he turned out! Alive and fruitful! Hopefully we won’t need an ark to survive this weather, but God has a plan for the end of this drought!
Have a blessed week!
