Late Have I Loved You

by Artist Eye  

The other day we were sharing a few things that we were grateful for and one person said that they were grateful for the rain after gardening.The phrase sounded so biblical, it made me smile. It sounds like that verse in Second Samuel: He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.

Then I thought, why shouldn’t it sound biblical? Same needy children of men; same bountiful God; same need to rehearse our gratitude: And surely, His Mercy shall come down as the rain after gardening. . . .

Our family moved to the Community in 1990. While raising our two children here I've worked at Paraclete Press and have been involved with Fine Arts over the years. I love to paint, tell stories, and build puppets--a thirty foot whale and her baby for the Spirit of America Band Field Show was one of the funnest projects I've ever done!

One thought on “Late Have I Loved You

  1. We live in the desert of Utah, only 12-15 inches of rain a year. So here we love the rain – every drop. The culture of SLC expects lots of green grass. But trying to achieve that, there is a great deal of waste – drinking water running down gutter. I wonder when God will get tired of this waste.
    Thank God for his Mercy, it is new every morning.
