Awake, my heart, to how Love calls me today. Like the rose welcoming the songbirds fleeing the hawk, may I make refuge and way for those seeking safety and love. Like the songbirds, after fear may I carry on singing and living fully. Awake, my heart, to how Mercy calls me today. Like the quiet, cool waters that quench thirst and revivify, may I be ready to help when needed, however I can. Like the cup that bears the needed waters, may I stay steadfast and true to mercy, bearing it and sharing it. Awake, my heart, to how Peace calls me today. Like the mourning dove greeting the sunrise and the sunset, may I be glad for each hour of this day, grateful to be present and part of it. My heart, my whole self, may I be awake today to how Love, Mercy, and Peace call me in every moment. Amen.
