Gracious God,
In a world that is simultaneously
Expanding
and contracting
Help us to breath in a steady rhythm
in and out
that the expanding may helps us grow
and the contracting will not make us smaller
Help us to see You
In and Out
In all ways
always.
In the rising sun
In the birds that fly
In the changing seasons
In the vast diversity of human kind
all colors
all the many ways we are
human
made in your image
a reflection of you
in the world
made to love 
made good to do good
may our expanding
and contracting
be a gentle rhythm
like a breath
of fresh air
instead of gasp
in fear for life.
Amen.
