Blessed are the pansies that survive late spring frost that remind us of summer coming.
May they remind us to greet others warmly.
Blessed are the petunias that open their blossoms to the hummingbirds.
May we open our hearts to those we meet.
Blessed are the geraniums whose brilliant red color brighten our days.
May we brighten others with our smiles.
Blessed are the fuchsia blossoms that welcome the bees.
May we welcome those who come to us.
Blessed are the thistle seeds that nourish the goldfinches.
May we nourish others by helpful conversation.
Holy Creator, we thank you for these blessings. Help us to be blessings to others.
