This morning as the world lay sleeping

I sat and watched the eastern sky

Colors of coral, lavender and gold,

White and grays caught my eye.


How I marveled as I watched

The changing of the scene

As the colors slowly faded 

And only gray skies could be seen.


Then I heard the thunder roll,

I felt the drops of rain

And over in the eastern sky

All was darkness once again.


But I thanked God for the blessing

That I had been there to see

The beauty that He painted

And placed there just for me.


And I thanked Him for the rain

A blessing on our arid land,

A reprieve from the heat of summer,

Morning blessings from His mighty hand.
