Your Sunday Prayer

Dear God,
Would you please send us some of this?  Not too much all at one time, please.  I’m not Noah, and the last thing we need are floods and mudslides on top of drought.   But enough.  And make it a soft rain, with some breaks in between so the earth can soak it all in.  A nice soft rain that will fill our reservoirs and give the dying oaks a drink .  And the thirsty sequoias, which are now spitting cotton. Plus, you should see the matilija poppies out in front of the house.  Nothing phases them.  They’re as hardy as iron, yet they’re looking positively wan for want of water. No doubt about it:  Drought.

I know our own stupidity and greed have put us in this predicament.  We’ve trashed the beautiful world you gave us and are still in thrall to the Koch Brothers and Exxon oil.  But you made us dumb as posts and unable to connect dots.  So, maybe in addition to rain,  could you you please see your way clear to fix our brains a bit as well?   I’m just sayin’ . . .

Thank you and Amen

Thanks for the link. Yup. That's the game. Been around for a long time. Unfortunately, the stakes are incredibly high. Global warming is changing our weather patterns in potentially destructive ways. As with all things, follow the money. Who profits from Climate Denial? Right. It's always the same. I'm going to try to post a link to an incredible essay from the NYT that more than accurately part of the sick heart of the major players mentioned in this piece.
