Living as those
who hope to grow in the root
of Your love,
we respond to Your love and care of us.
With laughter and tears,
and reminders of who we are to You and others,
You offer the assurance of Your care and attention.
In the gifts we offer this morning,
we give thanks for Your love of us,
and offer a willing sign
that we hope to love as You have taught,
not for any recognition of value,
but to give praise of You
and show signs of Your kingdom
in our living.
