A Warm Spring Welcome

As we celebrate this grand breakfast

in our new garden temple

let every window be opened,

every curtain drawn aside.

May the morning find us fresh, alive! 

Embracing the crisp air to quicken our senses,

absorbing sunshine to warm our hearts.

May our souls become infused with

the enlightening nourishment of Love and Faith

and a deep appreciation for each new blade of grass.

And as we enjoy this cherished reunion

of Earth and Sun and Life,

let us also remember the prayers

that have sustained us in darkness

for they are powerful wings to lift us up

and into tomorrow.
