Meditations for Advent: Day 5

Lord of all Wisdom,

 

We thank you for your Word, Jesus Christ.

Illumine our minds and bodies

by that Word

so that we might see every part of your creation

as a reflection of your glory.

 

In particular help us not miss

the small and contingent rocks, plants and animals

in which children so delight.

 

Make us children,

so that we might enjoy the sheer giftedness of your creation.   Amen.
