    THE LEGEND OF THE RAINDROP HAS A LESSON FOR US ALL.

    AS IT TREMBLED IN THE HEAVENS QUESTIONING WHETHER IT SHOULD FALL. FOR THE GLISTENING RAINDROP ARGUED TO THE ANGELS OF THE SKY, "I AM BEAUTIFUL AND LOVELY AS I SPARKLE HERE ON HIGH, AND HANGING HERE I WILL BECOME PART OF THE RAINBOW'S HUE AND I'LL SHIMMER LIKE A DIAMOND FOR ALL THE WORLD TO VIEW." BUT THE ANGEL TOLD THE RAINDROP, "DO NOT HESITATE TO GO, FOR YOU WILL BE MORE BEAUTIFUL IF YOU FALL TO EARTH BELOW, FOR YOU WILL SINK INTO SOIL AND BE LOST AWHILE FROM SIGHT, BUT WHEN YOU REAPPEAR ON EARTH, YOU'LL BE LOOKED ON WITH DELIGHT. FOR YOU WILL BE THE RAINDROP THAT QUENCHED THE THIRSTY GROUND AND HELPED THE LOVELY FLOWERS TO BLOSSOM ALL AROUND, AND IN YOUR RESURRECTION YOU'LL APPEAR IN QUEENLY CLOTHES WITH THE BEAUTY OF THE LILY AND THE FRAGRANCE OF THE ROSE. THEN, WHEN YOU WILT AND WITHER, YOU'LL BECOME PART OF THE EARTH AND MAKE THE SOIL MORE FERTILE AND GIVE THE NEW FLOWERS BIRTH." FOR THERE IS NOTHING EVER LOST OR ETERNALLY NEGLECTED, FOR EVERYTHING GOD EVER MADE IS ALWAYS RESURRECTED.
