Creator Divine, I know you cultivate hope Even in the bleakest times. I know you sow love in unlikely places. I know your light touches all. I know the roots of peace first form beneath the surface. I know that lilies don’t just spring up from nowhere. I know you awaken new life. Even when spring hides beneath winter’s veil, I know you awaken new life. God, these things I think I know. Forgive me when I forget.
