Shared Reading: “Lord give us a tender heart”…

Lord give us a tender heart.

Let us do loving things that surprise even ourselves.

Let us top daily to talk to people who need a good word,

Mend what is broken, and touch what needs to be loved.

Make us more aware of the tiny surprises that are scattered like secrets all around us.

Let us notice such things we have forgotten, and those persons of shome we have grown weary.

May we see them in a new way, so that we have a new word for them.

As we busily set out to do the large tasks, may we find more time for small celebrations.

O Christ, give us the grace to live out each day as though it were a gift. Oh Spirit, surprise us often.

Then let us show our great surprise.
