Rain Pushes Back Our Hike

Rain pushes back our hike

Clearing skies fool those on foot

But we soon join them


Source of all blessings, you bless us with abundance in the midst of want,

with health when others are sick,

with warm spirits while others are cold,

and joy out of suffering.

May we honor and praise the present moment,

for life,

and for all we learn through difficulties.
