Even When The Rain Falls

If you’re ever caught in the rain, it’s only natural to seek shelter,

but what if you stopped and stood and turned your head to heaven,

mouth open

and began to catch the rain in your mouth, taking in every last drop

 

This torrent is a gift from God after all, and sure it’s a lot to take in,

but why shy away from it? Just as plants are watered by the rain,

so too can we be.

 

Whether that rainfall is actual or metaphorical,

we have the power to take ownership of it, to use it for our betterment,

rather than our detriment, to enjoy life to its fullest and realest,

even when the rain falls

Tree Hugger

I am a star-gazer… a naval gazer

a tree hugger, and a God worshipper

I will meditate on you always

As long as my lungs have breath

For I am tenderly and meticulously made

and remade

in you and for you

Let celebrations rise to you,

now and forever,

for you are the Great God

of Mystery and Light.

All praise, hope, and love

Resides in you,

my God, the LORD of life.
