ART & POETRY by PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
As I sit at my window this morning, a cold front is slowly moving across the sky. The humidity and dew point have finally taken a dive. Soon refreshing rain will come to replenish the earth and give new vigor to the plants. Thank you, Lord, God, for always giving us relief. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!
Life and all its rigor, anxiety and friction,
Comes to a screeching halt when you find that tranquil place,
A sanctuary that gives you complete peace.
It can be held in words written on a page,
The sounds of nature,
Or the music of a classical masterpiece.
It can be a memory of a place once traveled –
A site untouched by human hands which has endured the test of time –
A place where only you and God exist together in perfect harmony.
But storms will come, clouds will gather, perilous skies will open,
Shooting its ammunition upon our heads and into our lives,
We become tattered, broken and worn,
But God’s sanctuary remains the same,
Filled with love everlasting.
If we simply let it rain.
