Called By The Bird’s Song

My contemplation

Begins in dark, ends in light

Called by the bird’s song.


Source of all blessings


You bless us with people who care for people they have never met,

Who sacrifice for others they will never know,

Who go hungry so the hungry may eat.

May I be more like these saints and less self-centered and self-serving.

Thank you for those who have a servant’s heart,

and for giving comfort to those who fear.*


*Thanks to Br. David Steindl-Rast for the inspiration and the format for this, from his wonderful book, 99 Blessings.
