Hello, my Friend! Hello today!
I hope you are in a good way!
No matter rain, no matter shine,
I always hope that you are fine!
Don’t you think water is so grand?
Just wonderful, straight from God’s Hand,
Is how a nice, cool drink can feel,
After a dee-lish home cooked meal!
…or how it feels washing your feet,
after long walking in day’s heat!
…or how great ’tis to watch it pour,
And see it splash right on the floor!
or how it feels right on your hand,
When washing off the beach day’s sand!
And how ’bout when the water twirls,
so happy sending sprays and whirls!
With splash-ful drops the spray…it hurls
The water drops…fly high with swirls!
When Heav’n above lets the rains come,
To wash the Earth and water some,
The drops are left so tenderly,
On flow’rs and leaves so lovingly!
The sun, with water, loves to play,
and not always in the same way.
Sometimes the sun plays with the rain,
And sky ends up with colors-gain…
When great rainbows show their great arch,
As they from Heav’n to Earth do march!
Sometimes the ‘bows do come to rest…
right on the water…just the best!
Just one more thing that’s fun to tell…
Of how water and sun play well…
Is how amazing it is when
Sun shows amazing stuff again,
By giving “aura” center stage,
Giving Sun’s story a grand page!
I know you must be thrilled to see,
Such grand fine sights for you and me…
To speak of water could not be,
without much talk of the grand sea…
Its power, might, and majesty!
An endless wonder…awesomely!
I’ve heard it said God’s chosen folk…
Had fear of sea, of which they spoke.
It isn’t hard to think of why…
‘Cause all that rain fell from the sky,
And then the Flood that was so great,
brought to many… death as their fate.
God gave to Noah the Ark’s plan,
Which did save the Family of Man.
When the Flood waters sailed the Ark,
Noah became the Patriarch!
But after that, the rainbow came,
After the waters became tame.
God’s rainbow then became the sign,
Of God’s Promise so good and fine.
He said no Flood would come again
That would destroy the Earth for men…
So, we who are alive, now, here,
Have God’s Promise to keep all fear
Of our World ending in that way…
The way it did in Noah’s day.
So now we can look at the sea
In a fine way for you and me…
We can be happy though we know,
That sometimes sea waves, great strength, show…
The sea can be both calm and rough…
For boats on water, sometimes tough!
The sunlight loves to brightly play,
on waters’ top with glimmer’s way!
And then ’tis sometimes calm with shine,
From sun’s generous light so fine!
So, when I look out on the sea,
I really am happy to be,
In a grand place where I can see
Such wondrous might and great beauty!
I’d like to talk about the Tide,
But first I need to go inside.
Me Mum has made fine lunch for me,
And this wee man is quite hungry!
But we will talk another day,
About the sea tides and the way
Sea’s waters roll this way and that…
But, now, to you, I tip my hat!
I am so glad we talked today!
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #42)
