Dear Lord,

In the spring of our lives, we are young and vibrant and as
vigorous with life as the tender shoots from the garden
bed. We are like the blooms readying to set seed and be
prolific.

In summer, we blow in the wind, bending and swaying with
the winds and storms like the trees, full and strong. Our
lives are as full as lush garden growth and just as
productive.

Now, in fall, with aches in our bodies and hearts, we must
accept the leaving of loved ones, much as a tree tolerates
the loss of its leaves.
Prayer for Graceful Change

And at last, in our winters, we must accept the snow that is falling upon us.

Bless us, Oh Lord, that we may accept the changing seasons of our lives, even as we
accept the changing seasons in our gardens.

Thank You, Lord.

Amen.
