from streams


"Rain, rain

Beating against the pane!
How endlessly it pours
Out of doors
From the blackened sky
I wonder why!

"Flowers, flowers,
Upspringing after showers,
Blossoming fresh and fair, Everywhere!
Ah, God has explained
Why it rained!"

You can always count on God to make the "afterward" of difficulties, if rightly overcome, a thousand times richer and fairer than the forward. "No chastening . . . seemeth joyous, nevertheless afterward . . ." What a yield!
