Waking Up Grateful

I arise today 

in the name of Silence
womb of the Word,
in the name of Stillness,
Home of Belonging,
in the name of Solitude
of the Soul and the Earth
 
I arise today
Blessed by all things,
Wings of breath,
Delight of eyes,
Wonder of whisper,
Intimacy of touch,
Eternity of soul,
Urgency of thought,
Miracle of health,
Embrace of God.
 
May I live this day
Compassion of heart,
Gentle in word,
Gracious in awareness,
Courageous in thought,
Generous in love.
