welcome the rain



outside amid the rain
beneath the tent
I watched the children play
playing
beneath the gray skies
running
running
over the lush green grass
laughing
running
running
into the rain
through every puddle
i smiled and thought back
i smiled because it brought back
being young
running into the rain
we were children running
running
running toward the rain
beneath the gray skies
wet grass beneath our toes
toward every puddle
peering at them from a distance
children playing in the rain
i stepped out from beneath the canopy
welcomed the moment
welcome the rain


Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.
-Hosea 6:3
