Sacred Hour

Sacred Hour
Every day I live is a miracle.
Every morning I awaken
is an invitation.
Every moment seeks a new way,
one more chance to sing,
to pray, to write,
to love, to dance, to play,
to live the miracle, to witness
to the glance
of God within each soul,
to allow the light
of revelation to shine,
like the star,
like the moon, like the sun,
like the dawn that brings
the purity of morning
ever rising
through our eyes.
I kneel in reverence
overcome with gratitude,
when I ponder the brilliance
of the divine design
of life in all
its infinite glory.
I open the palms of my hands
to the kiss of morning
and open my heart
to the greatness
of the love
that created all of this.
The intimacy of my breathing,
whispering through
my lips becomes
the breath of Christ
flowing endlessly,
in the innocent rhythm
of a grace that
shares its life with all,
that lets us live
and share in beauty
that rises far
beyond the morning sun.
Drink deeply of the
sweet air of communion
offered in the first light
of every day,
for God meets us
when we face the dawn
with faith
and feel the presence
flowing in the spirit
circling through our hearts
and souls,
cleansing and forgiving,
purifying every thought that
is less than love.
Rise with the spreading
 wings of dawn
offering us a kingdom
that enfolds
and shelters every heart in
 eternal embrace.
This truth is not ours,
nor is it ours
to steal from the fire
that warms this earth with life
blazing forth from God.
This is the nature of the Beloved
that weaves the beauty
of  the secret clues
of life and love
into each
beating heart.
Leap into the invisible realm
of all you cannot see
or know
and trust
the loving arms
that catch you there.
I am as old as the centuries
of time,
when I tell you
how beautiful you are
to God, and I pray
you will find the faith
to surrender to
the beauty of the holy child
within you
in this season of
the Soul from which
we’ve come.
Blessing flows like energy
and falls upon us
like a rain from heaven,
preparing us
for a new world
where there is
only love.
