A Mighty Wind




We are only passing shadows in a mighty wind.

May our hearts sing an honest song.

Today we found paper cranes in our bird feeder.
Today a maintenance man gave a ride home in the rain.

We are only passing shadows in a mighty wind.

Today we were exhausted by dishonesty. 
Today we were discouraged by the efforts of seeking approval.

May our hearts sing an honest song.

We take for granted the quiet presences in our lives. 
We take for granted the maintenance men who watch out for us. Who know us. 
We take for granted who we are. 
And we forget what is meaningful and what is meaningless.

We are only passing shadows in a mighty wind.

May our hearts be present in this life we have.
May our hearts love generously.
May our hearts sing an honest song.
