Morning of the Soul


Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass.


          This was the hymn at Saturday morning Mass, First Saturday of the month. Hymn numbered as J64, brought by the Angel. Just after some unexpected rains too.

Morning has broken

          It didn’t feel like it just then. Darkness covers much still. But my timing is never God’s. If this morning of life is to come, it will. I will wait by sending my heart to the needs the Angel has laid out for me. There is work to be done, and to it I go. Healing of my godmother’s sight. Souls of abusers. Muslim souls. My own sins and burdens. All to be brought before my Jesus.

Sweet the rain’s new fall,

sunlit from heaven

          May the morning come, may it come soon, this special morning of the soul.











  1. Morning does break anew each day…God’s peace flooding the universe. He hears our every prayer…both spoken, and unspoken. Time is an elusive thing and we leave that to God. Our God is a God of Mercy, and we follow the creed He has set before us. Love is the language of the soul; it is the language our Heavenly Father has taught us. We bend our lives to that purpose; we love as He has taught us to love. The stars come out each night in total darkness; still, nothing is brighter than love itself. We bend our souls to that light; it is the only thing that really matters.

    1. I guess faith means to walk both the paths of hopeful waiting as well as holy busyness. We cannot do one without the other. And both must be bound by the ribbons of praise and thanksgiving.
      May I learn this in a deeper way this year!
