“Breath of God,” a reflection by S. Karla Barker, OSF

Sr. Miriam Therese Winter, in one of her songs, “Breath of God,” shares some very potent thoughts.  The words go like this:

Blow through us breath of God
Like a pipe, like a reed, like a flute,
Making melody, the Cosmic song in us
Breath of God…

Breath = Life!  How powerful is God’s breath in us?  God’s breath, God’s life pulsates constantly in us and every part of us and creation.  How many breaths do we take in a minute?  An hour?  Do we give thanks and are we really aware that our next action depends on God’s breath in us?  Is the melody we play one of affirmation, comfort, or gratitude?

There’s an old adage, “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

What’s our proof of God’s life in us?  What’s our Cosmic song?
