This is a story of being thankful (TJ)! It is summertime, and it is hot and humid (PJP). It is in the afternoon, and the skies are overcast (QL and TJ). They are all at the Jersey Shore in a park by the fishing pier (PJP and QL). It is raining hard, and they are happy (PJP and QL)! It has been a hot summer. Some people are taking pictures (TJ). Some are dancing and skipping (CL). One man is bending over because the rain is in his face (MG). None of them know each other. It is a Sunday, and they are not working (TJ). They are all just hanging out (CL), rejoicing in the rain (PJP). It feels so good to them after having been so hot (QL). One man on the side is not participating, though. He’s in a bad mood and is feeling sad (PJP and TJ).
There are sounds of rain pitter-patting, and there are waves on the ocean crashing (QL and PJP). A storm is coming, and the waves are getting rough. It is cloudy (QL). There are also the sounds of people praising the Lord (BM) and of dancing in the spirit (TJ). They are all so thankful for the rain. Everyone’s heart is touched (PJP)….they had prayed for rain (TJ). And the sounds of a camera clicking are heard (CL). It smells of freshness, of wet trees, of the ocean (whole group).
After this picture, they will go home and continue praising God for the rest of the day (TJ and JE). They will fall on their knees and keep praising the Lord (PJP). It’s Sunday, and they will change in to church clothes (PJP). They will get dressed up and go to church later this evening (BM). And they will put on shoes (BM)!! Some might fix a meal (PJP). They will share their praises with their church members (TJ).
