Skies, cloudy and gray,
and falling rain imprison,
cutting off escape everywhere
Dark clouds are a part of nights -- and some days.
They are a part of every life.
Jesus spent many a night under the night sky.
He loved it; it brought a closeness to his Abba.
When dark clouds overcast our hearts
Jesus is there under our night sky.
He loves to be there.
His presence brings a closeness to our Abba .
The darkness is then holy
in the peace and strength
of God's mysterious presence.
