Oppressive, steamy, heavy air, filling the atmosphere with mugginess.
Your body perspires, your clothes stick to your body, you seek relief.
As rain falls and is absorbed back into the sky, the circle continues,
Until the clouds are emptied and wrung dry.
Fresh, green, new life sprouts around your feet.
Plants are relieved by the needed bath.
The power of God’s hand in creation is everywhere.
You feel His touch in the welcome raindrops.
You rush through the torrents and splash into puddles.
The caressing of God’s water washes away all your sin.
You thank Him for His undeserved love and you are clean.
