God of creation,
bless creators who by their gifts make the world
a more joyful and beautiful realm.
Thank you for the beauty through which
they help us to see more clearly
the truth around us.
Whether I look upon the wonders of a flower,
or the vastness of the heavens
or the creativity of the art work,
and contemplate Your beauty,
May I be lost in wonder. and awe,
Declaring ‘The dream is ended; this is the morning’.

‘The whole earth is a living icon of the face of God.’ St John Of Damascus
I’m asking God for one thing,
only one thing:
To live with him in his house
my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate his beauty;
I’ll study at his feet.
