Meditation : Praise to The Shaper Of Hearts

Praise to the One whose love

Stirs the ancient embers

Sparks the breath of prayer

Praise to the One whose love

Entices the wandering

Beckons the confused

Praise to the One whose love

Grows wings on the weary

Dreams hope in the discouraged

Praise to the One whose love

Dips deeply into diversity

Pours forth boundless beauty

Praise to the One whose love

Soothes with the ointment of mercy

Transforms with the touch of compassion

Praise to the One whose love

Threads the energy of friendship

Stitches the strength of fidelity

Praise to the One whose love

Tickles the soul with laughter

Urges the heart towards joy

Praise to the One whose love

Embraces the untamed

Dances with the passionate

All praise to this Gracious ONE

All gratitude to this Beloved

All love to this Mentor of Friendship

 All devotion to this Shaper of Hearts.
