[Prayer spark: November gloom]
I love November. I love this weather–the crisp air, the gray sky, the green and gold and red leaves waving and dropping in the wind. I love the ook and spook of it all, the creativity it sparks.
But not everyone does. For many, the bleak and the grim weather only mirrors what’s inside. (And I get that. Some days it does for me too.) They (we, sometimes) long for sun–its warmth and light–in their days and in their souls.
So today, Lord, be with those who are down. For whom this weather depresses and saddens. Be with them in this. Use it, redeem it, for them.
