Today is International Peace Prayer day. It is indeed fitting that we are in the throes of torrential rain for when it rains we have a choice. Stay in and grumble or go outside and embrace the weather. A Pluviophile (n) is someone who finds joy and peace of mind on a rainy day. When my kids were young we would put our bathing suits on and run around with wild abandon just for the shear pleasure of it. I invite you to take an umbrella (or not), wear some flip flops (or not) and go out to find peace in the rain and to share a prayer for peace on earth.
May the sun bring you new energy by day
May the moon softly restore you at night
May the rain wash away your worries
May the breeze breathe new strength into your being
May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.
- Apache Blessing
Go well, go in peace.
