Our loving God, how majestic are you, and how beautiful the works of your hands. Thank you for the springtime blooms that remind us, even in the midst of our shared anxiety, that you delight in creating and recreating and making all things new. Give us peace in the present, hope for the future, and love to cover all our days. Lead us into your presence that we may worship and mourn and be renewed in your Spirit. Show us the work and the rest you have set aside for us. May your kingdom reign be evident in our lives. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
