Lover of Life, each night prepares us for the new day, each moon makes way for the next, and each time of needful and faithful change calls us forward. May we dwell in the assurance that though change we do not initiate can be scary, it may still have wonderfulness in store. Sustain us as we meet the painful and discouraging changes, the ones where so much is truly beyond our control. Grant us courage in these days and nights to still love boldly and give ourselves freely to what is needful and faithful. Lover of Life, as we whirl with you in this dance of change, may we laugh often, live as well as can, cry when we must, and embrace the dance that is. Amen.
