Today, as we walk into a new world:
the first day of the rest of our lives
we pray to remember the important things:
You, and the love and peace you promise.
When we are with you, we have our Good Shepherd, who holds us close in arms.
Today, may we return to you, and to the care you ask us to maintain for others.
Today, may our focus be our place in your arms, bringing others to your loving embrace, and caring for each one in this imperfect world.
