God of storm and rain cloud of wind and biting cold of hail, thunder and flood. In darker days, loud and fearful days we see something of your awesome power and recognize our own weakness, our own inability to control the elements. God of sunshine and birdsong of calm mists and warm breezes slow moving streams, and blossoming trees. In lighter days, fun-filled brighter days we see something of your overwhelming love and recognize our own unworthiness. Help us to recognize you within the elements of your created world, and be grateful.
