Bless this tender bloom.
Beauty emerging in the turmoil of spring.
Delicate, intricate, miracle of life.
Reflecting the presence of the Holy One.
Bless this tender one,
Grieving a mother who was loved.
Losing a husband, burying a child.
Holy One, send your presence, your comfort.
Bless this tender world.
May beauty show forth in unexpected places.
New life in a refugee camp; kindness in the aftermath of terror.
Let us reflect your presence, your comfort, your love.
Holy one, we are yours.
