it’s February. enough said.

Winter Prayer

 As the wind is shaking the windows
and the bare branches shiver with cold
God, shake our resolve today
so we lean into you.
As winter weaves while lies around us,
a frozen desert, screaming and profane,
be our truth
be our spring.
As our faces are battered and worn by wind
that wells up our eyes
with tears
batter and wear and heal our hearts
that our souls might well up with thanks.
