God of unwavering Easter love,
Help me to lean on You, contemplation2
For the grace and courage I need to be
open and vulnerable to being
your transformative unalterable love.

Help me to remember the example of your Son,
greeting the possibilities of each day openly,
practicing compassion regularly,
choosing humility often,
and seeking your guidance
to respond rather than react,
that I may become a reflection
of Your goodness and love
to those I encounter each day,
family, friend, co-worker
and complete stranger alike.
