Holy One,

There you are! Your beacon of love and grace, always above and around me, guiding, curbing, soothing, and refining. You know so well our self-absorbed ways, ignoring, wandering, spiteful, and prideful. And yet you love us still.

As we turn the page into a new year, be with us, Immanuel, in new ways, so that we cannot miss your unmistakable plume before us.

For we are yours,
Divine One,
We are yours.

and Amen.
