Sing boldly, sweet singer! Let music ripple on the breeze as smooth as cream, as clear as crystal, sweeter than nectar. Elegant chorister, soloist divine! Charm the sunlight with purity, singing praise for the new day, pitch perfect, delicious balm, Nature's remedy for night's sorrow. Though mouths be silent, the blackbird sings! Though heart be darkened, creation's harmony persists raising hope in the Light. This new day is freshly made- gifted with song and silence, stirring my spirit, my Father's blessing to all who will listen- and love. (c) Richard Starling 2021
A psalm worth reflecting upon today: Psalm 59:16-17
But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength;
Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For You have been my stronghold
And a refuge in the day of my distress.
O my strength, I will sing praises to You;
For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness.
