The world dances with possibility

The winds undress the trees

The waters move and call

The sun warms and renews

Elections (almost) come to an end

All the while you are watching over us, God

As close to us as our beating hearts

Loving us fiercely yet tenderly

Inviting us to fully grow in our relationship with you

Compelling us to connect with one another

Breathing new life into us

As we heal one day at a time

And respond with gratitude and joy

¡Aleluya! Thank you, God.
