A prayer when I awakened -
When I awaken God --
---- with words from you,
---- with my cat molded around the crown of my head like a hat,
---- hearing birds chirp outside my window with energetic songs,
---- with peace in my heart,
---- with gratitude for uninterrupted sleep,
I am blessed.
Thank you for early morning holiness to wear during the day like my favorite sweater, snuggling into the seams, weaving myself through each knit stitch, clasping further my hold on you. Amen.
