God of the seeds, the cells, the notes in a song-

Such good things come from something small. A tiny pebble causes water to ripple feet. A collection of pennies become a dollar.

Likewise, the droplets of our good works fill the sea of your Divine Soul. One word, one action, one display of love after another turns into a symphony of blessings.

May we see small deeds as seeds of hope. May ideas to build justice continue to form as we converse with our neighbors. May kindness

swell like waves.

One drop. One cell. One note. One seed. Each will grow with the faith in our souls and love in our hearts.
