One of the early answers to prayer connected with this project came in the form of a rainstorm . . .
Most of the verses of the poem were with a photograph which expressed its meaning, but verse 3
Is all your laughter genuine,
A gift of God’s good grace?
Or does it hide a troubled heart,
A tired and teary face?
was still standing alone. It needed something to symbolize tears – raindrops . . .
Raindrops on a window . . .
Raindrops on a window with sun lighting them up . . .
Raindrops on a clean window that had a pretty view with sun lighting them up.
Dear God, will You please send some rain soon for this picture. I need it to rain hard enough and long enough that there will be a lot of raindrops on the window, but gently enough for a short enough time that the drops will still be distinct. And will You please send sunlight behind them to highlight them? And, one more thing, will You please send the rain in a direction that it will get on a clean window with a pretty view?
