it is thundering and pouring rain and i am on the front deck just sitting in the cool breeze as cars drive past and rain falls all around soaking the earth with it’s live-giving water and it rains harder now and lightning flashes and i put out this cigarette and sit beside my Lord with my heart open and my soul free and i know He is here with me in this city apartment where i sleep and pay my rent and it is good.

those people can smash my window and steal my bicycle and yell their profane words on the street corner and rain will fall in my car but they cannot touch what is inside of me. they cannot break into my soul and steal my freedom. remember waking up and it was snow white and silent in this city and we road around town and went out to breakfast and took pictures and went to the park in our bundled up coats?
