Carrying Sunshine


Frost-warning: The Weather Channel has warned us to blanket delicate plants and flowers.


Weather has often invaded
the house,
Hebrew Testament God
of plagues and pestilence.
While the sun shines
outside the door,
there are chilly, damp
and stormy signals within.

Jesus, who cast out demons,
remove dark clouds
from this dwelling place.
Open it to birdsong
and flower fragrance.
Blanket us with the knowledge
of your infinite love
and your abiding tolerance
for human weakness.


I will carry sunshine to a neighbor with a greeting or a wave of recognition. I will seed the clouds with cleansing sprinkles.


Faith and Family
