Giving Thanks for Breath

All depends upon breath
Without it, we are nothing
Worship it as your soul–
for surely it is that

All breath depends upon the wind–
that connecting us to all else
The wind, God’s breath, nourishes us
lifts us up, allows us to be

Give thanks for breath and the wind
They are our best friends
Though invisible, together they are our foundation
May you breathe and dance in the wind forever
