Dear God, We celebrate the dawning of spring. As the sun rises on a new day, and as the rain of winter is blown away, may we awaken to the new life deep from within. May the radiance of the Son echo in our hearts as we plant seeds in our lives that sing of a new story of the Earth. As the birds build their nests and the bees find new nectar. May we too sow a new tapestry in our lives. May the Spirit that made creation channel the rays of springs return. Amen.
