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
