Lent 31

God of mathematics and mystery,
Creator of the amoeba and the great blue whale,
Painter of the sweeping clouds at sunset and of the delicate violet,
thank you for giving us macro and micro,
for meeting us in the second and in the season.
Thank you for the grace
of a friend's smile when the world is falling apart, and of
the expanse of nature's beauty when my world is falling apart.
Thank you for the miracle
that a glass of wine and a shared loaf of bread
can heal the world, or at least satisfy a moment.
