Sacred Life Sunday: Blessings






Bless the fingers,

for they are as darting as fire.

Bless the little hairs of the body,

for they are softer than grass.




Bless the hips

for they are cunning beyond all other machinery.

Bless the mouth

for it is the describer

Bless the tongue for

it is the maker of words.




Bless the eyes 

for they are the gifts of the angels,

for they tell the truth





Bless the shoulders for they are a strength and a shelter

Bless the thumb

for when working it has godly grip.

Bless the feet 

for their knuckles and their modesty






Bless the spine

for it is the whole story.




……....Mary Oliver
