21. The Drops From Heaven!

  J.M.J.

+

Oh my, the rain came down today!

God bless us is what I do say!

No matter where we tried to run,

The rain came down on everyone!

It does feel nice upon my face…

Rain brings a cooler, fresher space.

Sometimes, though, you look for a place

To find shelter not near home base.

Sometimes I see a leaf-y “glade”

For shelter…nice! And by God, made!

319   314

365

Sometimes the leaves upon a tree

Grow out the side…a canopy…

326

A leprechaun can fit right there,

And find a nice and dry “somewhere!”

Sometimes the leaves are in a bunch

That serves as cover in a crunch!

Sometimes the leaves are sparse and few

But still can help with cover, too!

327

The leaves can cover just enough,

So the wetness is not too tough.

But if some leaves can not be seen,

My sight will check the nearby scene,

To see if a tree might just be

A shelter in some way I see.

Sometimes the bark will form just right,

And leave  a hole that’s clear to sight.

If I see that, I jump right through

Into the tree, and watch the view.

330

And sometimes one leaf’s all we need…

Could be from flower, tree, or weed.

As long as it is big enough

To cover heads when rain gets rough.

I, Finney think a maple tree

Has the big leaf I need for me.

An oak leaf for me Mum is good

It has the leaf we hoped it would.

383   382

The leaves work well to keep us dry,

No matter if you’re girl or guy!

They cover well and help us stay

Well groomed…in the leprechaun way!

380   377

Then comes the time the rain has stopped.

The heavenly waters have all dropped.

But then we’re still and look around,

To see the rainfall on the ground.

And then our eyes feel such delight,

As God’s clear raindrops are in sight.

They sparkle here, and glisten there…

Their lustrous shine is everywhere!

Each drop is in its special place.

No doubt it’s there by special Grace!

The Hand of God allowed a scene

So lovely on our fields of green!

The green leaves are adorned with “jewels”,

297   304

In this grand land where shamrock rules!

307   310

294

The branches carry tears so clear.

In Éire*…Ireland so dear…

298   332

296

The grasses hold so tenderly

Heaven’s water, called rain,  you see.

295   336

323

Plants and flowers, the rain does kiss…

The Master “Drop Placer”…no miss!

333   324

334

So, how could it be to complain,

When we know this beautiful rain

Brings us sights of brilliance, so grand,

For everyone, in all this land.

If precious is a drop of rain,

It seems to be so very plain

That all who He made specially

Have Grace and help amazingly,

Because the Bible makes the call…

God’s Image and Likeness…are all!

If God, for raindrops, takes such care,

Imagine how, for all, He’s there

Every second of every day

To give all His Love, is His way.

I’ve talked enough…this I do know.

But it was fun…raindrops to show!

I’m very glad we talked today.

  1. To my dear friend Finney from Jane,
    The gentle rain that falls from Heaven is so beautiful! God is so good. He knows just what we need to water the plants and vegetables to make them grow. I bet you and your mum just love rainy days where you can find a nice hole in a tree and look out at Gods precious gift of rain.🌳 Maybe you too can listen to the gentle falling of raindrops on the leaves.🍃 It is Heavens precious gift

    1. To my dear Friend Jane from your dear Friend Finney!

      As, this, I write to you dear Jane,
      I think of how I love the rain…
      And, yes, me Mum she loves it, too!
      I know she’d like if I told you
      Of how she loves our Ireland mist,
      And how it’s on her “fav’rite” list!
      And yes, we’re grateful to the trees.
      Each tree, none know, how much it sees.
      But we do know, a tree’s our friend,
      From morning’s light to day’s night end.
      So, dear Friend Jane, I hope you hear
      those soft, clear raindrops…naught to fear.
      For God is with us, for all days,
      Embracing all with Loving Ways.
      I thank you for your thoughts today.
      God bless you is what I do say!
