“I bless my body temple, which houses my living Spirit within me. My voice is an instrument for peace, my hands a medium for service. My feet and legs transport me so that I may be a vehicle to express divine love in the world.”

I just love the way the author of the above quote, Rev. Christine Green, so eloquently and uniquely described the function of several body parts.
Since I love to sing and I know it is a way for connecting to others and The Great Mystery, I delighted in the idea that my voice, singing or otherwise, can be used as an instrument for peace. Singing makes me feel peaceful, and peace in the outer world must begin with me And, yes, my hands enable me to serve others by preparing a meal with love, helping someone cross the street, and so much more. My feet and legs are precious in getting me from one place to another so that I can be of service.
It was especially timely to have this as one of today’s readings after learning yesterday that on two separate occasions during the past few days when I ventured out to be of service and be with others, people had tested positive for COVID and I had possibly been exposed. Learning this has had me more focused on my body temple more than usual. I am adamant about keeping my physical being healthy and safe.
I affirm that my body is vitalized, energized, and whole. I bless my body temple where Spirit resides and take the utmost care of it.
