Beauty Day 49

Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Beauty Day 49 Ain’t Done Lovin’ the Rain

 I think we need

to make the rain our friend

silvery wet stuff

falling from the sky

like adding smudge and blur or noise and multiply

so many things go wrong

without it–brown trees

all over town

they hack and chop

and cart away

they’ll never come back

brown grass and shriveled leaves

a dullish shade of green with gray–

but mostly

rain draws me upward

to consider and ask

what is going on here?

why choose wetness from the sky?

earth inside her mother’s womb

reborn before our very eyes

God you are amazing
