Lord of the all the seasons…
of all the times of our lives,
as the harvest is bought in, blessings ripen in you.
As the earth gives up its bounty for all of its inhabitants, we see God’s
love sustain life.
As trees shed their leaves in beauty and the garden gives up its bounty, may we learn to forgive deeply, offer gifts generously, and, with all that passes through our hands
trust that deeper, lasting blessings are given you.
As autumn’s colors pour into the world, blessing unfolds through you; and as the earth turns toward winters’ darkness in its dance of seasons,
may we walk through life’s challenges without fear, trusting the unseen spring of life yet to come.
And even the trees, amazed, thank you.
