O Creator Lord,
without trying to impose my own pattern upon them
or exploit them for selfish ends.
Let me welcome them, enjoy them,
value them, love them,
for what they are and for what they are becoming
through your creative love.
Each of us is like a seed unfolding in the light of the Maker. We grow, we pause, we Spring, we Winter. May we remember today and every day to value the journey of all of God’s creatures.
