AND THOSE WHO LOSE THEIR LIFE WILL SAVE IT
(Mark 8: 27-38)
I opened the curtain this morning:
the sun was giving itself away
with a brilliant smile.
I walked by a stream this morning:
the water was giving itself away
with a gentle song.
I greeted a friend this morning:
joy was giving itself away
with the warmth of touch.
I thought of your cross this morning:
how you gave yourself away
in holy love.
May I become such grain this morning:
living in what is given away
for another’s bread.
