The Rain Forest

The silent rain upon the forest trees,
The sound that plays upon my heart's strings,
Gives me rest and tranquility,
Puts my soul at peace!

Silent rain, without storm, nor wind,
Gentle rains, shining with a soft light,
Benevolent rains, peaceful and true,
The tears of all the sadness upon which you fall!

My soul is filled with serene melancholy,
A resigned spirit, of things that are unalterable,
Ahead in the horizon , I see a bright light,
But my heart stops me from running towards it!

Psalms 61:1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

Aw, that' nice.
Except here rain is just annoying. Makes everything dirty and mucky and muddy and gray and blech and I-don't-wanna-get-up. But if there's thunder and lightning...yay!

Psalm 61:2 has always been a favorite verse of mine.

The post was lovely and the pictures were beautiful.

I like Psalm 118:12

"They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them."

That sunset picture looks so much like one that I took our first night in Hawaii in December. Just gorgeous.

I am trying to remember the verses I shared in my latest post and be calm. I needed this, too!
