another window to the mystery

And here is the continuation
of Christine Hemp's prayer from last Sunday.
"Since each living being is an extension of our own heart,
open our eyes to the sacred in all creation:
from the horse’s fuzzy winter coat
to the collage of needles on the forest floor;
from the juncos hop-scotching under the feeder
to the thick mud on our boots.
Each raindrop, each barren tree, each winter storm
is but another window to the mystery that is yours.

When the fire causes water to boil, Lord,
we see the power of your lungs.
Teach us to find your breath in all things, Lord,
and inhale the cloud of the Son of Man."
