God of life and beauty:
We pray for the quietness of snowflakes, knowing that love is quiet.
We pray for the kindness of small acts, knowing gentleness is fragile.
We are grateful to know that thoughtfulness makes no sound, that compassion leaves wonderfully beautiful traces when we open ourselves to wonder.
May ours be a religion which, like the snowflake, goes everywhere in quietness, in love, and with gentle regard for that which is true and beautiful, in us and about us. Amen.
