Beloved you teach us in joyful surprises to be awake to what is, both what is difficult and what is wonderful. May we use this awakening well, allowing it to guide us to fulfill our faithful promises and risk for what is worthy. Beloved you teach us in joyful surprises to be delighted with life's blessings, to name a moment as good and enough, no perfection required, lovely and amazing nonetheless. May we remember the naming of the work of creation as good, and not complete, and our part in joining creative goodness. Beloved you teach us in joyful surprises what it is to dream worthy dreams, to create what adds to life's blessings and to share it with others. Sleeping and waking, may our hearts be ever attentive and do what is needful for goodness' sake. Amen.
