crocuses in the manse garden. JRen17

O Precious Holy
how marvellous is your world
the land lays dormant; brown fields, bare trees
and yet, somewhere the season is advancing; somewhere
autumn is creeping,
How magnificent – that in every hour of every day, new life begins
old life wanes
the weary sleep
the dormant rise…

Holy One
may we take a moment today
to marvel at your creation
to be thankful for this world
to remember, other voices, other lands,
all yours, all known and loved by you

May we pause
Take breath
and wonder
Holy, holy, holy,
