Today I’m grateful for the wonderful rain and the wind. The rain that falls strong and wet, filling the world with that beautiful scent of life and refreshment. And for that wind, strong and clear, that reminds me that God’s Spirit is near. And I’m grateful for shelter from that rain and wind, for dry clothes, a dry office, and dry apartment to live in. For all the green plants given to us as food, nourished by that rain, for those who sow, and those who reap, for those who care for soil and sky, and those who dedicate their life to toil under the sun.
