Spring Prayer of Fellowship

Thank you for the gifts of life with you.
May I appreciate in full the beauty of our path together.

Thank you for your crimson understanding.
May I accept myself as well as you do.

Thank you for the violets of your patience.
May I still grow no matter what is left of me.

Thank you for my weedy imperfections.
May I come to love as well as you do.

Thank you for your joyous reaching hand.
May I stand guard against deception of myself.
