Isaiah 65:21-24

 

21.
They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat
their fruit.

22.
No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others
eat.

23.
They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune;

For
they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with
them.

24.
Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.

 

Reflection by Darlene Wagner

 

During times of hardship, the
promise of Divine generosity can open one’s eyes to the bountiful, good things
in the present. In my experience, the daily practice of attuning my heart to
the gentle and loving Mother, has opened my eyes to the many ways in which all
my needs and even some desires are fulfilled. When I compose myself to the
Source of such outrageous love, I’m able to give to others; I can show kindness
to others, while I am barred from judgmental thoughts or actions. Hence, by
individual and community commitment to the Divine, the promises in Isaiah
chapter 65 are brought to life.

 

 

Hymn:

 

Mother, I thank you for the health and
joy and love you bring.

Mother I thank you how I cannot fall out
of your grace!

Thank you for the songbird’s tune!

Thank you for the lily’s bloom!

Thank you for the springtime life,

that
rises as the snow subsides!
