God who parents, nurtures, co-creates and delights in our growth. We thank you today for all we are.
For the melodies you sing over us and the tapestries you weave, knowing we will become them one day even as we weep into the broken mess which is all we see; we thank you for the beauty, God of Light.
For the steps you place before us, often seemingly random or disjointed but always leading us onwards to fulfil your purpose for our lives; we thank you for the beauty, God of Light.
For the faint and wavering hope even in the deepest despair and darkness, that we hold for eachother even when we dare not hold it for ourselves; we thank you for the beauty, God of Light.
Keep shining your light for us, Oh God, that we may reflect it for others and become beacons that light up the world with Love. For Love will win, Love will light, and Love is You, God of Light.
Peace be with you
