Thank you for the rain

Lord, thank you for the rain.

Thank you for the way
it falls in silvery sheets
dances on the sidewalk
as it
drips
to the ground.

Thank you for the way
it soaks the trees
beads up on the branches
like little liquid crystals
then
drips
to the ground.

Thank you for the way
it slides safely through the gutters
tinkling like a windchime
then
drips
to the ground.

Your blessings,
Lord, they
drip
to the ground.

They fall,
innumerable,
gushing,
gifts from above.

Your provision
rains down.
Your forgiveness
rains down.
Your healing
rains down.
Your love
rains,
pours,
floods us.

Lord, thank you for the rain.
