We give thanks for the harvest of the heart’s work:
Seeds of faith planted with faith;
Love nurtured by love; Courage strengthened by courage.
We give thanks for the fruits of the struggling soul;
The bitter and the sweet; For that which has grown in adversity.
And for that which has flourished in warmth and grace;
For the radiance of the spirit in autumn and for that which must now fade and die.
We are blessed and give thanks.
