And It Rained.


And it rained!

The water tumbling from the sky,

My River rose and rose,

The path where I walk

No longer there.

The clear green water

Now brown and opaque.

But like life

We have sunny days

And we have rainy days.

I know the rain will stop

And My River will subside.

And once more I will walk,

I will walk my path

Beside the clear green beauty,

The clear green beauty of My River

That I know will return,

As it always does.

It will always be there,

Be there in my life

As I walk by My River

With My Spirit of Life.

            A great metaphor, we all have deluges in our lives our banks will overflow but with the knowledge that things will subside and return to normal if we only have the patience to wait.

            • Goldfinch60

              So true soren, all will be right in the end.
