God van de herfst

GOD OF AUTUMN

God of autumn,
help us to be more like nature,
accepting the changing seasons;
like the changing of the trees:
not a dying as life sometimes feels,
but a stripping bare in preparation for inner growth, knowing that to shed the outer layers
will reveal the strength that is hidden underneath.

God of autumn,
it’s so hard to let things go: the shields,
the camouflage,
the flimsy covers …

We cannot hide from you;
you are our strength,
you see our inner beauty.
You see beyond the human dressings and wish to clothe us in your love.

God of autumn,
help us to be more like nature, accepting the changing seasons
not because they are out of our control, but because they are in your hands.
