May others find in us the shelter and the love that we have been so freely given by those who have mothered us
And I knew that could happen
to our world too —
This growing in
and emerging from
Darkness into Light
May love rise in us.
Shine your sunlight on the seeds of life
Thank you for all the wonderful things
You have made:
The whole world, all the people
My home, my school, my friends, my pets.
I don’t even want to recount
what has happened
in my life this year.
I just want to be with the One
who already knows.
who knows me through and through
better than I know myself.
Be my guide.
Help me to be aware
Of all that lies before, behind and around me.

Heal those who are sick. Restore them to full health.
