Gray is a Color, Too

Heavenly Father,
On this blustery, rainy, winter morning
Remind us that gray is a color, too
Of Sunrise
Clouds that bring needed rain
The breasts of doves
The fur of kittens
Rail fences along country roads
Smoke from chimneys
A favorite coat

Remind us that gray is the color, too
Of wisdom
Life’s mysteries
Difficult choices

Father of us all, help us to remember that gray is a color, too
as we face our individual winters of the soul
Times when the warming sunshine of your love
does not penetrate our clouds.
