A Moment of Peace | by the Brotherhood of Sincerity Member

In the springtime, I love to sit outside alone in the early morning chill to sip a mug of hot coffee, read the word and bask in the sounds of nature. Each creature praises the Creator in his/her own way. I especially enjoy the symphony of praise performed by all the different birds that live nearby. The orchestra often includes the loud trumpet sounds of Canada geese flying overhead, the high-pitched whistles of black-capped chickadees jostling for a place at our bird feeder, and a lone woodpecker holding down the percussion section in a tall oak tree.

Each bird has its own unique sound, but together they generate a beautiful morning chorus of praise. Just like the birds, we each have our own distinctive, Creators-given voices with which we can praise the Creator. Some people have the ability to praise him/her out loud for all to hear; some have the same gift of quietly praising our Creator during conversations with others; some are skilled at soundlessly praising through prayer meditation or just silence. Like the birds, we can merge our unique voices and together share a magnificent melody of our Creator praise for all the world to hear!  

Dear Creator, help us become more aware of the many reasons for praising you.
