A Harmony Pastor Feedback: Monday Morning Providing: 9/12

Picture: George Mendoza

Good morning, good God!


Yesterday, on a wonderful Sunday afternoon,

a tremendous creature who caught my eye,

my curiosity and prayerful creativeness…

She made no objection to my calling her Helen

    – so, Helen her identify shall be!


Now, she wasn’t terribly talkative,

so busy was she about her work 

– or higher but, your work, Lord –

since her life appears totally given

to doing simply what you’ve got requested of her

and solely that: nothing extra, nothing much less… 

Helen seems to take pleasure in her work:

    visiting gardens and window packing containers,

    mixing and mingling among the many blooms,

    fluttering, hovering, sipping discreetly

    from snifters of nectar’s sweetest dew… 


Helen performs no favorites, Lord:

    her dance card full and light-weight on her wings,

    she journeys the sunshine improbable

    with each bloom on the social gathering… 

She could stay so long as seven months

or as little as three to 5 weeks

however the entire of her life, as transient as it’s,

shall be spent, Lord, in serving you…


I provide this morning a easy prayer,

could I stay my life as Helen lives hers:

    busy in regards to the work you’ve got assigned me

        humbly accepting the duties which can be mine;

    gracefully discovering peace and contentment,

        just by going wherever you lead me,

    comfortable to be within the place that is mine,

        sipping what pleasure could come my method;

    dancing with all who take my hand

        and taking the hand of all I meet… 

I can not know, Lord, the day or the hour

however the time will come whenever you name me dwelling:

    could I spend my life, be it lengthy or quick

    like Helen, my pal, the hummingbird moth…
