I can’t create a tree,
make cells out of nothing,
or make them grow and multiply and blossom.
I can’t imagine an insect I’ve never seen,
or a sound I’ve never heard,
or what it might be like beyond the limitlessness of space.
But I can help someone feel loved,
and that is all God has called me to do.
Yes, I accept that I am not God,
that I cannot do the things only God can do,
but I also accept that I am of God and in God
and that, in communion with God,
I am invited to love the world around me.
In deep gratitude, I accept.
