Heavenly Raindrops

When one thinks of royal attire, cotton does not generally come to mind.  With royalty, their clothing is usually silk, taffeta or linen; something more luxurious than simple cotton.

It’s a good thing I was not born into nobility, because I have always preferred the comfort of cotton or cotton blends.

Recently, I visited a local cotton patch to photograph it prior to being harvested.  As I looked through the pictures later, I thought of how cotton is typically characterized.  It reminded me of qualities God wants manifested in our lives.
