Beginnings’ Offering

Priority to set
Of gifting to prepare
Awakening this day
Into our time of prayer

Beginnings’ offering
When the mind is clear
One of morning light
Within the open air

Stilling of the soul
To stir the inner ear
Speaking heart to heart
Silence that we share

Birthing of this day
Creator be aware
Of outer and within
Your Presence being here

Beginning of Love

Based upon a quote by Thomas Merton

The beginning of love
Is the will to see
To let those we love
Be themselves perfectly

The resolution
For us not to twist
To fit our own image
Let their being exist

If in loving them
We do not love who they be
But only potential
Of their likeness to me

Then we do not love them
But we love only
That of ourselves
Of reflection to see
