Ever present God,
Open our hearts to find beauty even in the simplest of times.
Open our minds to discover magic in the midst of routine.
Open our hands in acts of kindness and tenderness.
Open our day to include laughter, rest and sips that bring comfort.
Thank You for breaking through the heavens to dwell with us in every moment.
