Holy One,

Your kindness teaches us…

That you walk with us as the tide comes in, that you hear us when the waves are roaring.

And when the tide is gently rolling out, the sand smoothed into ripples, your voice still calls… to pray, to rest, to believe you are the same in flood and famine, in storm surge and slack tide, in wind or rain or sun.

From sunrise to sunset, You are present with us.

Your love flows around us.

Blessed be!
