may I trust the faithfulness of your Father
who feathers and feeds the birds.
In the people I meet,
the places I go,
the food that I eat,
help me to see and hear,
taste and touch
the abundance of your grace
within the landscape of your love.
Set me free from anxiety
and the burden of excess
so that I may share with others
the gifts I have received.
