God's Rainy Lullaby


Pitter pat, droplets fall

on my window pane

Soft and warm you speak to me

My cozy friend "the rain"

I smell the must-like odor

as you touch the ground

You make me feel so peaceful

that rhythymic rainy sound

When our savior calls on me

and surely I must die

I pray I hear my favorite sound

"God's rainy lullaby"...


God's Love


I'd like to tell you how I feel

Our loving God is hope to heal

When life is tough and throws a curve

Do not fret, as God will serve

Life goes on in-spite of strife

We'll grow in wisdom in this life

Even when you lose a fight

God is there to make it right





God Love's You


He knows every hair on your head

So live in joy, let go of dread

Put your hopeless thoughts at bay

and thank the Lord for each new day

Go forth with hope, for God is here

When you live in faith, there is no fear

The lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

— Psalm 23 of David

God's Love

Do you Believe in God's Love for you

  • Yes-I feel comfort knowing he loves me and watches over me
  • No-I don't believe in God
  • Not Sure what I believe

Thanks Minnetonka. I'm with Nellieanna, and love "God's rainy lullaby," and how the rain is associated with calm and sleep for you. (My daughter has a dog who shakes and trembles with fear when it rains.) You call it a rust like odor. I say it smells like worms. But I know that smell!

..well I am off to sleep now ... it's 1:06 am here by my lake of Erie and I feel so content, having just read your wonderful reflective piece of poetic prose - I will dream of your rain drops and that God will look after me so I will see another day with health, happiness and a chance to explore your hubs once again!

um - yes - Dallas has been getting more than its share - about a year's worth in a coupld of days, plus a few tornados! My house was not in the area of the tornados and it's on a high spot so flooding is seldom a problem in the exact area.

WOW you and I are on the same page. I too love the rain and wrote a poem about it. Now if you tell me that you are a Gemini..

Minnetonka Twin 5 years ago from Minnesota Author

Hi J.B.-Actually, I'm a Capricorn. Did you hear that there's a guy out there that thinks the signs are all wrong now and were like one or two signs past. I can't remember the details but it was interesting to ponder. I can't wait for spring again when I can listen and smell the rain. Thanks again for reading my work:)

What a wonderful poem you have here. When I moved to Arizona, I missed the rain so much. It rained only 8 days out of the year on average, for just an hour. Now that I am back in West Virginia, I feel much better. I have always been interested in rain and storms. The utter calm before the storm. The dimensions of the storm. Anyway, I enjoyed it very much. Glad to follow you. Best wishes.

Thanks for sharing that Richard. I am glad your back in a state that has rain more often. I love a good rain:)

You really know the art of playing with words. I loved those lines:

Our loving God is hope to heal

When life is tough and throws a curve

Do not fret, as God will serve...

You are a good artist. And thanks for visiting my hubs.
