Ezekiel 37:1-14

Loving Divine Family,

Oh, but how we long to look back at days of glory, when we were in our prime. But our bodies grow older, betraying the desires of our youth and replacing speed and stamina with frailty and weariness. You draw close to us. Life-giving Spirit breathes into us, filling us with life and possibilities.

Thank you, Yahweh, your breath gives life, sustains us, and gives us energy. Thank you that your breath connects us and joins us together. Come, Winds of the Four Directions; blow on us, and renew us.

I feel Life-giving Spirit’s breath within me today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Stay near to us, LORD. Be in our line of vision, so we can keep our eyes on you and remain hopeful. Reveal your possibilities and purpose for us, so we will find the courage to step forward into new normals, and feel your life coursing through us once again.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
