Pastor’s Pondering – August 9, 2016


It does not rain for weeks,

And then we pray-

And sometimes it will rain

Just enough,

When just enough will do.


But sometimes

It will rain way too much

Though if we are wise

We will bite our tongues

And ponder ways that we might share

The bounty we’ve been given.


And sometimes it refuses

To rain on what we have sown,

And we must water it with our tears.


But blessed are we if we have sown,

Not knowing what will fall-

For faith is an adventure,

Requiring hope

And each life is a mission,

Inviting something reckless,

Requiring love.
