Winter rain brought me a blessing this week; I glanced out my window and was immediately entranced by the huge drops of water clinging to the bare branches of a nearby tree. Summer foiliage would have obscured this view. In the pared down beauty of the winter landscape I was able to glimpse hundreds of earthbound diamonds glimmering like stars in the rainy mist.
“May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”
~ Old Irish Blessing
I love this song by the Dove Brothers, a classic Southern Gospel quartet. This tune and rhythm will make you want to jump up, sing and dance.
