The sunshine came out when I walked to vespers last Saturday.
The rain came again after vespers, but could not hide the sun.
I am aware of my faintness of heart,
how often I do not choose to love.
I finished book VI of the Brothers Karamazov
and am reminded again
of the life of God, the Church, the Saints;
the call to love, to humility.
Oh that I would remember God's mercy in the rain
and that the sun is always on the other side of the clouds.
