It’s July 2nd and in my area of the Pacific Northwest we are experiencing what I feel is a late start to good ol’ summertime.
The weather has been very changeable, quite like the daily news reports.
We’ve had a few warm days but not many and it seems more like Spring to me instead of Summer, as each day I awaken to gloomy cloudy skies, chilly temps and occasional rain sprinkling, this can put a damper on one’s spirit quite like the morning news reports often do lately.
Sigh. Oh where, oh where has my beloved Summer gone? Has she vanished with all our other normalcy?
I hope not. I hope she returns soon. I miss her sunny smile and gentle hugs of warmth.
How’s the weather where you reside? Are you experiencing the same, or does Summer alive and active in your area?
As we have slowly been moving toward a happier time of things once again starting to open up and get back to normal, enjoying warmer temperatures and a lifting of the virus, we are now in the US facing a time of senseless violence, brutal hatred, tearful sadness and racial rioting.
I am praying for our country and all people today in this sad time of rioting.
These are perilous times for all of us upon the earth as we have faced fires in Australia, a worldwide Virus pandemic and now nationwide racism rioting.
As I awoke to a dramatic weather change this morning going from sunny warm dry 70-80 degree days to a dark cloudy chilly rainy day in the 50’s, I felt the current weather was mimicking the news reports and the rain was God’s tears falling in response to the tragic death of George Floyd.
Therefore, I am praying for peace and goodwill for all peoples on earth.
I pray for a gentle healing rain that will put out the fires of hatred and wash away the prejudices as it brings a time of refreshing and healing to all of us.
May the clouds of dark thoughts disappear to let the light of justice and hope shine upon us, and may we, as people of all colors, find peace in the valley of our hearts.
