No Matter the Weather You Accompany Me

Gracious and Eternal God, you have created this beautiful world.

Every minute of every day you nurture the earth and tend to the needs of your people.

The warmth of the sun, a gentle breeze, a sudden down pour - all are your gifts.

Help me be mindful that no matter the weather, you accompany me.

When the storms of life sneak up, help me cherish the gift of faith and my friends and family.

Help me to be a better steward of the people and the world around me.

No matter the weather may my heart be honest, and open, ready to share your generous mercy and love.

I ask this in union with Jesus and the Holy Spirit - One God forever and ever.

Find yourself surrounded by the beauty of the Upper Gardens on a sunny day.
