Winter Rain

The sky overhead,
looms grey and dark.
Again.

Clouds blanket the land,
like a soggy fleece,
wrung out by God’s hand.
Rain.


The wet, boggy ground,
squelches beneath my feet,
sodden and damp.
Mud.


And then through the clouds,
A ray breaks through,
A shaft of light,
And a spotlight too.
Sun!

God is good...even when it rains.

Love the pictures to go along with the words! Reminds me of the verse from Psalm 19:1, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Hope you are having a nice weekend!
