    Looks like rain today when I peer
    Out my window as the night greets
    The dawn with the arrival of a sun
    Fighting its way through gray clouds;

    I rise from my bed to search for the day
    Reasons to smile and purpose to escape
    The security of my blanket that keeps me
    Warm from the stillness of the cold world;

    Looking around the room I seek my peace
    Resting in the corner next to a half melted
    Candle resting in its wax covered holder
    That has sealed its place on the tattered rug

    I quietly listen to the breeze greeting my
    Window as it ventures past on its way to
    Places few can see and I begin to wonder
    If I could float on its trail of serenity;

    I visit my peace searching the pages to
    Find a reason to stand and enter the world
    With happiness and joy when the day looks
    to be one covered in misery and pain

    Only to find parables of old and gospels of life
    Retelling stories of fisherman frightened in their
    Boats by the raging seas and their cargo standing
    In the midst of the storm beckoning them to follow;

    I am comforted by the words of trust that ring
    From the pages as the one whom walk on the seas
    And rest in the midst of storms can show many
    More how to “step out in the midst of trials.”

    I step away from my peace strengthened
    by its Words lifting my head to the day as
    it peers its Blue through my window to assure
    me that today the rains will be unlike no other;

    So I open my door with umbrella in hand and peer
    out over the horizon to see a rainbow resting as it
    awaits the stroms to pass and I smile when a bird
    lands before my feet to take the seeds I drop;

    and I lay my umbrella back inside my door with my
    coat for the rainbow reminds me of the fisherman's
    faith and i thought “I’ll walk to work today…Time to
    get wet…Holy Spirit…Rain down on me…"
