In our quiet places, you are life –
giving space for us to breathe.
In your holy wisdom, you have named us –
giving honor to our differences.
Our suffering is assuaged.
Our joys are recounted.
Our strengths and weaknesses are embraced.
In you, all of our emotions are valid and affirmed.
Our strivings for the righteousness you have shown us kept holy.
You have draped the darkness with your light.
Within your recollections we live forever.
