God, as you planted a garden
and made it a paradise of pleasure,
help us as we continue our work
to perfect the beauty of the small corner of the earth
where we live.
Make our thoughts blend as harmoniously
as the colors of your landscape.
Teach us that what you have given us in love
is ours to cultivate in faith,
in order to selflessly fill our lives --
and the lives of those who view our work --
with beauty and joy.
