nourishing rain in the winter

Call it what you will, I call it rain
When troubles come and pan against my soul
Go in if you like, I will remain
And let the washing waters make me whole                                                        washing

Just when I’m sure that I can’t bear the rain
A tiny leaf starts pushing through the ground
In a place where the soil was too dry to sustain it
A new tiny flower can be found

Once I was stuck, I thought things would never change
And I watched that cloud pass through the sky
And right before my eyes it took a different shape
And I knew, so would the clouds in my own life

Just when I’m sure that I can’t bear the rain
A tiny leaf starts pushing through the ground
In a place where the soil was too dry to sustain it
A new tiny flower can be found

And I see Him in the rain
And I feel Him wash away
What I do not understand
So new life can spring up once again

And I see Him in the rain
And I feel Him wash away
What I do not understand
So new life can spring up once again

And the flowers come to show
That all that rain was helping me to grow

“Rain” by Sara Groves

base of the tree of life

I’ve always loved the rain…

          Walking,

                            playing,

                                             running,

or  just sitting in the rain brings me joy

          …my Father is in that rain and His love, grace, and Word is what nourishes my roots.
