O God, grant us a sense of your timing

In this season of short days and long nights,
of grey and white and cold,

teach us the lessons of beginnings:

that such waitings and endings may be the starting
place, a planting of seeds which bring to birth
what is ready to be born -

something right and just and different,
a new song, a deeper relationship, a fuller love -
in the fullness of your time.

O God, grant us the sense of your timing.
