Rain, Sweet Rain

I stepped out the back door to take in the beauty of this soft, spring shower.
Much needed...
Unlike the violence of earlier rains,
this one came without fanfare.
Even its thunder is gentle.
With equal gentleness came a 40+ year old memory.
A song sung in either high school or college choir.
A Psalm, actually...the 72nd.
6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: 
as showers that water the earth. 7 In his days shall the righteous flourish ;
and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, 
and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus...
Let your peace rule my heart and mind today.
Come to refresh all Your people.
Come to establish Your righteous kingdom.

This blog is beautiful wonderful words from God that I needed this morning and the pictures fit right in. Thank you

  10. I stepped into the dark sunroom before I went to bed last night and it was raining....and I watched the lightening in the distance. There's nothing in the world like being alone with God....watching what only HE can do!!! Thanks for such a sweet reminder this morning, my friend!

  11. Amen! Sounds like it was a lovely rain. And I think I know just what kind you mean... makes me almost drawn to the thunder as I am awed by His Awesomeness! Thank you Father God for raining down on my friend Rebecca and revealing Yourself to her. And thankyou for crossing our paths!!
