Musings From A Musical Mind

God’s Laughter

The laughter of a child

The laughter of a child (Photo credit: cams-not-in-lux)

I laid in bed and listened to the rain

like a roaring, whirling sound

it came

pounding on my roof

with many intricate patterns

set in motion by an unseen force

I’ve heard people say

rain is God’s tears

But what if the rain is laughter instead?

God’s laughter

Laughter that drenches

like rain

Rain that envelopes

and fills up the crevices

brings healing to the dry

and satisfies the thirst

rain that at first seems unnecessary

wet, cold and inconvenient

but then as I really listen

I hear the marvel

the complexity

the supernatural lilt and cadence

of heavenly laughter

billowing down

chasing me

bringing life

energy and hope

a breath of fresh air

and a kiss of assurance

Laughter that has not given up

or abandoned

laughter that seeks, reaches and pours

gloriously overflows

drenches and lavishly gives

And I smile as I listen

straining to hear more

more of this strange laughter

Laughter that takes a breath

pauses and almost stops,

then comes around again

whispering in the thundering clatter

“All is Well”

giving reassurance

and finally

gently lulling me to sleep…

    I’m not big on poetry, but that was well done, Cindy.

  2. Our role is not to understand everything but to accept and enjoy. I think I’ve been negligent in giving thanks for the rain, the wind, the sun, the times I need to be redirected, et cetera. I need to remember I’m receiving good gifts. If I look at rain as laughter and see through God’s eyes and hear through God’s ears, the world won’t be about me or against me. I’ll be a lightning rod waiting in the rain, waiting for a lightning bolt to go through me, leaving everything around me unharmed. The laughing rain will fall on the just and the unjust, but I’ll know I had a purpose by being there, accepting by faith my role, and enjoying the rain.
