Why is spring so fraught with rain?
Why does it pour and spatter and spit?
Dissolving snow and rinsing grime from my window pane, it’s like He knows the earth needs a good morning shower.
Or is it grief, a liquid love?
Does He weep for those who have fallen asleep in the cold shadow of winter’s rest?
Does He weep to awaken those who sleep in Gethsemane?
“Will you pray for me?”
The heavier the pour, the more of His tears I can hold to my heart.
I know He already prays for me.
