PSALM 131. Nancy Lucid
I am humbled, O God, by the world’s majesty
and by your love.
I know that I will never understand it all.
It’s too hard for me.
But I still my mind and calm my anxious heart
and give myself to You
like a sleepy child on her mother’s lap.
Waiting on You–always.

Today we honor and make sacred the practice of gardening. We bless the time we take to plant and nurture, to feed and water. Together in a deep spirit of love, we acknowledge the sacred nature of participation in growing things. May we engage in prayer for healing and for wholeness, for the whole sacred world.
Let us pray together:
May I come to see the sacred nature of each moment I spend with living, growing, plants. The grace that connects me to the gifts of earth and the beauty of the world around me. Let all my gardening be a blessing.
