Ever present God, help us to recognize you in the world around us. May we see it in your creation, hear it in the wind and music of the day and feel it in the things we touch. May the textures we feel remind us of the diversity of your creation. The softness of cotton, the rough feel of bark, all of your creation announces your presence surrounding us. Let us celebrate all you have given us and be good stewards of your creation. Amen.
