Divine Surprise

Dear Mother in the Moon
Dear Father in the Sun
Dear Child in the Stars
May you grant us this day
The divine gift of surprise
of seeing our world and our life
in a new and powerful way.

Open our eyes
Open our minds
Open our hearts
Open our lives
To the new that was always out there waiting for us,
To the present created for us,
To the growth we create with you.

We know that surprises will often delight us
when we let them in
But that other surprises may be difficult and heavy to accept.

To stay open to possibilities though
we know that we have to be open
to both the sweet and to the sour
knowing each has a place in our opening to you.

We are here to live and to grow
never being able to know what lies
around the next bend
but we do know
that with the help of you
and with the help of those around us
we can become new and better
from those surprising gifts.

The gift of life is the gift
of the divine surprise
moments that startle us,
moments that amuse us,
moments that delight us,
moments that open us up to the core.

These are the moments when we are aware
we are part of something bigger than us
a family, a community, a world, a universe
that holds more than we can imagine.

Dear Mother in the Moon
Dear Father in the Sun
Dear Child in the Stars
May you grant us this day
The divine gift of surprise
of seeing our world and our life
in a new and powerful way.

Open our eyes
Open our minds
Open our hearts
Open our lives
To the new that was always out there waiting for us
To the present created for us
To the growth we create with you.

Amen
