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.
