It rained at camp so I wrote the following words.

 

 
 
The rain falls on the just and unjust
but they may not receive it the same
some may not want it to fall right now
and they look for someone they can blame.
 
Some see it as a timely blessing
and with thankful hearts they pause to pray
looking for how they can share these joys
after the storm clouds have gone away.
 
Some seem to drown in their own pity
brought down in the currents of their fears
seeing only the things washed away
increased by the streams of their tears.
 
Some lives are like a deep reservoir
saving water for a drier day
they still have what it takes to live
when others dried up and blew away.
 
So it’s not what we receive, my friend,
that brings joy into our life
it depends on the outlook we have
that brings us joy out of strife.
