we recognize that your are always with us, lord, and we invite, welcome, honour your presence wherever we are, whenever it is, whatever we may be going through. may we see our celebrations as grand moments that still came from you, may we see our joys as momentous occasions that would never have been possible without you. may we take every high point of our life as an opportunity to turn to you and not just run to you when we're in a pickle. by your grace we will practice your presence every day. thank you for giving us the chance to use all kinds of things to praise you with, to see every situation in a different light, in your light, thank you all we can, do our celebration in full recognition that you are with us.
