Happy Birthday, Jack.
Today you are seven.
From the top of your head
To the tip of your tail,
You are loved.
Thank you, universe,
For letting us
Share life with Jack.
And then a hooman came to the earth who loved all the creatures. Francis was a brother to the sun and the moon, the birds and the wolves, the bunnies and the cats of all sizes.
Be praised, my Lord, through all your creatures.
– St. Francis of Assisi
Canticle of the Sun
Scola Canis Scoti, Book III
Join me (Jack) and other creatures for a blessing on the lawn in front of The Upper Room. Wednesday, October 4, 4-6 pm. (The Upper Room is located at 1908 Grand Ave., Nashville, TN 37212.)
Jack says, “If it is Too Scary or Too Far to come, send a picture of yourself and my mom will bless you. (Arya is sending her picture because she says it would be Too Many Creatures to keep in line.)”
God hugs you. You are encircled by the arms of the mystery of God.
-Hildegard von Bingen
