Thank you gracious Creator for your gifts.

Thank you for the minds behind pandemic vaccines. Thank you for music. Thank you for the way the birds sing, heralding the dawn.

Thank you for the confusing liturgy of Palm Sunday, for the opportunity to walk once more the road to the cross, to that morning garden filled, I imagine, with new flowers and birdsong, where a tomb sits empty.

Bless and keep us this day, in your holy name we pray.
