A Walk in the Rain

November 19, 2015

IMG_6933Though the rain may fall and the wind be blowing,

And old and chill is the wintry blast;

Though the cloudy sky is still cloudier growing, and dead leaves tell that the summer has passed;

My face I hold to the stormy heaven,

My heart is calm as the summer sea,

Glad to receive what my God has given,

Whate’er it be.

When I feel the cold, I can say, “He sends it,”

And His winds blow blessing, I surely know;

For I’ve never a want but that He attends it;

And my heart beats warm, though the winds may blow.

    Lovely words. And it looks like someone was taking a photo from under her umbrella!

    Yes, nice words.. I agree! I have met a new walking buddy. I met her in the painting class. It’s a nice easy path around the senior center building. I can do this…lol!

    In light of our rain and wind storms this past week I think this is a very fitting post and photo.

      We just happened to be driving back from Portland that day of nonstop rain and wind. A bit stressful on the freeway…lol!

    A walk in the rain can clear our cobwebs out, Roberta. So fresh and comfortable with a new friend, too. 🙂

    The umbrella makes this a special and artistic perspective, Roberta.
