Rain is Baraka … Right?

Wadi Musa (Petra), Jordan

From Farewell Tour

Some people go on vacation for adventure, and others for relaxation. By the time we got to Wadi Musa last night, we’d had too much of the former and not enough of the latter. Up early and on the move every day for a week, we were exhausted and starting to crack. Today’s rain was unfortunate in that we didn’t get to see much of Petra, and especially because we couldn’t make it to the Monastery. On the other hand, today’s rain was also baraka (a blessing), because it gave us an excuse to have a quiet afternoon in our hotel room, napping and recuperating.
