First, I would like to credit my friend Denise Balog of Grace Filled Devotions https://denisebalog.wordpress.com/.
Her post this morning brought back memories of my childhood, days, while watching the rain on the windowpanes of our tiny apartment. Whenever I read the verse that,” Now we see through a glass darkly but then face to face (1 Corinthians 13) I recall those raindrops streaming over the glass as I peered our wondering about the world. I hope this little poem and then the Joni Eareckson Tada and Laura Story video will bless you today with that longing to fully behold the face of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Through Windowpanes I looked out from the upstairs window Of my little childhood home Watching rain stream down the pane And wishing I was grown And striding through the great big world Free to walk about and splash With important things to do and say Outside my window sash Now these older nose eyes look out And wonder at God’s grace That though now rain clouds windowpanes I’ll one day see His face!
