Saturated

July has been a deluge of storms and rain, it seems that we've been hit with inclement weather at least twice a week this month. I love thunderstorms as long as I am home and everyone is safe, but it's getting to be a little ridiculous when we are hit with seven inches of rain in two hours! Flooded streets and basements have become the norm. We're thoroughly soaked! How I wish I could be soaked with something other than rain...I would love to be saturated with the Precious Blood of Christ...





















Saturated

"Amen" I say, and the cup is offered;
a small sip and I am back
on my knees with the taste of
the Precious Blood still strongly
flavoring my mouth.

A small sip is all it takes
for the Blood of Christ to
saturate every pore of my body.
I am drenched in the beautiful liquid
that quenches my deep thirst for Him.

Oh Lord, let your Most Precious Blood
that poured from your side
permeate my soul forever.
Immerse me, flood me, wash me in your love.
