Happy little droplets that let me know you are here…
And when I gaze upon you, I smile and all is clear
Clear as the raindrops that are hanging, on leaves as I see them appear
My heart sings a morning song, I am happy all the day long…
Raindrops fresh and clean
Tell the world that all will remain…
When hurts and disappointments fill your life with pain…
All will be washed away by the clear, gentle, rain!
Leaving not even one tiny stain…
Raindrops, sent by God, bringing happiness, again!

The Soul Takes Flight Poetry by: MS O’Neill
Psalm 51:7-15 The Message (MSG)
Soak me in your laundry and I’ll come out clean, scrub me and I’ll have a snow-white life. Tune me in to foot-tapping songs, set these once-broken bones to dancing. Don’t look too close for blemishes, give me a clean bill of health. God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life. Don’t throw me out with the trash, or fail to breathe holiness in me. Bring me back from gray exile, put a fresh wind in my sails! Give me a job teaching rebels your ways so the lost can find their way home. Commute my death sentence, God, my salvation God, and I’ll sing anthems to your life-giving ways. Unbutton my lips, dear God; I’ll let loose with your praise.

Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4 View all posts by mahh1954 →
