Generous Joy heal our hurting hearts, open us to the newness of each day, send us out to bear healing and hope to one another and this earth. Let us leave no one behind, but find the holiness in each and in all, the tender seeds that need a little more warmth and lot more care to wake and grow fruitful. Generous Joy lead us away from letting those who have hurt us once continue to do so, whether in daily jabs and blows or from being bound by and believing our scars to be signs of shame rather than survival. Let us embrace and create gladness and reasons for thanksgiving in each and every day, with tenderness and with tough steadfast care, with bold hearts and bolder dreams of the goodness that is and was and can be. Generous Joy make us cupbearers of compassion, tending this earth and each other with care that challenges us and changes us and bears healing into being. Amen.
