Enjoying the Air

‘Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!”

-William Wordsworth


“Hold your empty cup in your hands.
Notice the space within the cup.
Think of the space within yourself.
It is filled with the Divine Presence.
Draw near to this Loving Presence.
Sense this Loving Presence permeating your entire being.

Rest in silence and tranquility.
Listen to God say to you: “I am here.”

—Joyce Rupp,“The Cup of Our Life.”, Ave Maria Press


one flower
many hearts sitting
connected by the ribbon of love
the ribbon of life

open hearts
breathing the same air

coming together
for understanding
and insight
