Heavenly Father, you are the maker of heaven and earth. We marvel at your creation: the rebirth of the land after a long winter, the warm breezy days and cool nights of spring, trees and grass showing their first colours and buds for the new season’s growth. We are grateful that you have made us in your image for you are the God of all comfort, the God of compassion. We celebrate your abundant goodness, mercy and grace. Out of our thankfulness we proclaim all your wonderful deeds.
