Almighty God, We thank you for all we see of your own beauty in the world you have created, and in people’s lives you are re-creating day by day. We thank you for the details of love which enrich our lives even when the going is difficult, and we thank you most particularly for your love to us. In Jesus Christ who gives us purpose and hope today, and for the future. Thank you, Lord.
