God of life,
We give you thanks
For families and feasts,
For aloneness and enough;
For music and laugher,
For silence and sorrow;
For long journeys home,
And for the homes we make where we are.
Thank you for anticipation and fulfillment,
For excitement and tranquility,
For busyness and uselessness;
For work and for ease.
Thank you for the rhythms of each season
And of each day.
Thank you for hearing us,
For loving us,
For dwelling with us.
