Rain run

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.

.

Sweat and rain

run mingled down my face

and grace and effort

stain my brindled shirt

as I run drenched and greening

through the cleaning flood

that flows as smooth

as blood runs in the river

of my veins, flows strong

among green things

that grow along the banks,

and I give thanks for

all that washes, blesses

and increases life

upon this earth, for strength

and health and length of days,

for each breath's birth,

for God's life-giving power

to amaze, in this co-Creation's

sweet, baptismal shower.

.

Deep Blessings,

Pastor Steve
