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,
and for all we learn through difficulties.
