"Rainbow"Prayer/Poem for Winter Days and with Thoughts of Spring

God consoles with red of warmth and love

Love gives me support

God consoles with gold of sun

His light doesn't overwhelm me

God consoles with green of new beginning

Life continues because we travel this way together

God consoles with blue of water

Water of Baptism.You are my child.And remain so.For ever.
