My protector

These 9 days between the Ascension and Pentecost are filled with 15-20 songs of the Holy Spirit every Morning and Evening Prayer. Many of them we sing only at this time. They are all inspiring and filled with hope. The singing, even at 6:30 a.m., is loud and strong!

Here is verse 3 of one of our favorites, "Send Us Your Spirit" by David Haas.

Send us the wings of new birth,
fill all the earth
with the love you have taught us.
Let all creation now
be shaken with love,
come to us, spirit of God.

Also arriving this week, another type of bird--our ruby-throated  hummers!This one already staked out my feeder by "patrolling" on the nearest tree, in order to keep others away.
