Lover of Life bless us this day and help us bless others. When we are restless, may our hearts touch the earth and find reassurance that we belong. When we are lonely, may we reach out and meet one another in grateful wonder. When we are busy, may we pause when someone needs our help, and may we do all we can. When we are stuck, may another help us back on our way. And when we are confounded, may we have the grace to wait and learn what we need before we continue. Lover of Life bless this day and help us bless others, for in giving and receiving, in our imperfections and our needs, in our gifts and our talents we are called, shaped, and changed. May that be through and in the spirit of love, now and evermore. Amen.
