It is a marvelous miracle unfolding in the back yard. There are two bird houses, both occupied. The one nearest the house has caught most of my attention. I noticed the sparrows that had moved in there several weeks ago, and in the last 10 days their young family has been impossible to ignore.
Two little mouths constantly at the entrance, demanding attention, chirping, squawking, and being met by their parents, also constant response, providing, feeding, seemingly tireless in their efforts. The reality of life, survival and a creation that continues to unfold.
Sometimes we are the parents, sometimes the babies. Lord, care for us in our incessant needs, and strengthen us as we endeavor to care for others. May we take in the miracles that surround us.
In thanks to the Creator of all things,
"God of all creation and all peoples, we offer thanks that you hold our hearts in yours and that you hear our prayers, whether we speak with the eloquence of saints or with sighs too deep for words. Open our hearts to the power of your spirit that we might be a people refreshed in our dedication to you. Grant us the grace to allow the Holy Spirit to work within us, that we might live as faithful disciples of Jesus; let it be that by knowing us, others may know you. Through us, O God, let your kingdom come. Amen."
