25. After the Rain!




I, Finney, feel so good today!

The rain has passed and fine’s the way

I feel with all the cool, grand air,

Now that the weather’s bright and fair!

Don’t get me wrong now, I don’t feel

That rain’s no fun or a bad deal.

It’s just so nice when sun breaks through

And gives a day that feels brand new!

It’s fresh;  it’s clean;  its coolness soothes…

It causes me to want to choose

The rain to come again someday

To help us feel refreshed this way!

After the rain, it feels so fine!

The raindropped leaves, they sure do shine.

The air feels “washed” and brightened clear,

And even new sounds  you can hear.

The water rushes…leaves give drops.

It seems the “water” never stops!

It fills the streams and wets the ground…

New “green” and flowers all around!

The corns’ grown higher…gardens burst,

As if, oh my, they had such thirst!

They needed water so…to grow,

From seeds in Earth someone did sow.

From rainy day to sunny bright,

The rain has brought a wondrous sight!

The flowers, grass, and trees are “glad…”

Without the rain, they’d be so “sad.”

I love the yellows…pinks… that grow,

And all the reds that flowers show.

Some plants so richly show their green,

And trees complete the heav’nly scene!

So, how can we not love the rain?

When what comes from it is so plain…

The beauty of the plants and trees,

And all the flowers and cool breeze!

God’s gifts to us… these gorgeous things!

It shows us how all Nature sings…

How God wants for us all things bright,

That give such wonder to our sight.

To show you all these lovely scenes,

With many, many shades of greens,

Has made me feel it’s time to nap.

And though I have no sleeping cap,

I’m sure I’ll have nice rest today!

                                     God bless you is what I do say!  (See Footnote #25)

      Hello, S! Oh! Hello, hello!
      It is so wonderful to know
      That I can look so forward to
      Finding there is a note from you!
      My flowers, trees, and mountains, too,
      Are daily parts of what I do!
      I have my special work each day,
      And then I have some time to play.
      Sometimes, though, a grand nap I take
      But it’s not long before I wake,
      Most of the time, so I can eat
      Some grand fine meal or something sweet!
      So, S, I hope I have a place
      Inside your heart, just a small space,
      Because you’ve found a place in mine…
      I think you are so grand and fine!
      As always, I do thank you so,
      For letting me be sure to know
      That you take time to think of me
      And care to know just “how I be!”
      I hope your Fam’ly’s good and well…
      And I am sure our God would tell
      That’s all He wants for each of us
      Is Life that’s full with blessings-plus!
      I hope you have some fun today!
      God bless you is what I do say!

  1. To my dear friend Finney😊
    Yes, it is so beautiful after it rains! Everything is so crisp and clean. The sun comes out and all of God’s nature comes alive like you said in so many brilliant and gorgeous colors! What a wonderful God we have that loves us so much!!! How the plants and flowers spring forth with all their beauty. It almost seems like they compete with each other one more beautiful than the other🌷🌸🌹🌺🌻🌼💐. Yet everyone is doing the same thing as we should be doing. That is giving God the Glory right where we as God made us🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈
