Blessed Earth, you are home to all our experiences, and to all those whom we love. You sustain our very existence. The food we eat, the wine we drink, the medications for our ailments are your gracious gifts to us. And when our earthly days are done, we will return to you, in one form or another. May we be ever mindful of this loving relationship. May we always honor you as sacred ground. May we always defend you. May we always heal you. May we always be grateful to you for the treasure of life that is Us. For our lives and all you give to sustain us, we give thanks and praise. Blessed Be, and Amen.
