Beloved, wherever I go may I find your presence. Sharpen my awareness of mercy, thankfulness, generosity, and love when I am afraid and in unknown circumstances, that I may know your presence even in such times and places. This, too, is home. Wake me to the gift in every person, to our share responsibilities and choices in making sorrow or making joy, in creating peace and in cultivating mercy. This is the way of making home wherever I am. In the darkness, let me breathe gratefully for darkness' gifts, for the comforts of the night and for its virtues. This, too, is home. Wherever I go may I find your presence, and make room for the love that changes everything, mercy that bears all, peace that grows understanding, and joy born from reaching to live into our faithful promises. Amen.
