Tiny Droplet

 


For now, we see only a reflection as in a mirror, then we shall see face to face.  Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. ~1 Corinthians 13:12


Tiny droplet

Clinging After

Rain has passed

Inconsequential

Fleeting until

I stop and peer

Into its orb

Amazed to find

Whole world reflected.

Amen!

  1. Did you notice the reflection of "the world" is upside down? Is the droplet trying to tell us something?

    God bless.

    1. I did notice that, Victor. Yes, the world through man's eyes is upside down and topsy-turvey, but everything is put to rights with God's vision.

  5. It's incredible how something as seemingly insignificant as a tiny droplet can hold the entire world within it. Your words remind us to pause, to take a closer look, and to see the beauty and wonder that surrounds us, even in the most unexpected places.

    Hugs and blessings, Martha

  6. Amazing, indeed! Great reminder (that) there is nothing insignificant about the world He created. Can you even begin to imagine what's next?

  11. Another lovely poem, Martha! We have a slender-branched tree outside our kitchen window that becomes bejeweled with droplets after a rainfall. It appears to be decorated with glimmering crystals. Imagine--each one is reflecting its surroundings, albeit upside down! Even a tiny phenomenon of physical science such as this boggles the mind. Our God is a marvelous Designer!

    1. He certainly is the great Designer, Nancy. His miracles are all around us when we take time to take them in. I'm glad you liked the poem, too.

    1. Oh, Pam, I'm so sorry to hear about your computer crashing, and do hope the matter will be resolved sooner than later! In the meantime, please know how much I appreciate you communicating with me via your phone. That can be such a pain! Keep in touch as you work toward getting a new computer system.

  18. Sorry for being late to the party again, Martha--very busy couple of days around here. Once again, your gifts are on display as you've managed to encapsulate an incredibly uplifting and encouraging message in a few well chosen and artfully arranged words. It's amazing how much God is able to reflect in a small, liquid orb we hardly notice. It calls to mind how much of His Kingdom and His love I've seen reflected when I take the time to look beyond the first superficial glance. Thanks again for sharing your heart and the beauty of God's world with us.

    1. I give all credit for the photo to my husband, Danny, who is an amazing photographer. I had the idea for the poem dancing in my head (with the rain drops), and he managed to capture this perfectly. Thanks, Duta!

  22. Oh my, dear Martha. Superb! I was so sure I already commented on this beautiful poem, as I wrote a longwinded comment, but I can't find it on here now. Maybe I didn't press the publish button.

    PS. I've been taking the hair vitamins you recommended for about a week now... so we shall see how they work for me. Bless you sister.

    1. I do keep having folks comment that some of their heartfelt comments aren't showing up. I hate it! Happy to hear that the vitamins you are taking are working for you, dear friend. Just give them time, some weeks and months, and I know there will be improvements.
