Give me BIG ears today,
with deep wells in which to hear
what is being said to me,
the messages offered in the words spoken.
May I receive,
and may I hold with generosity and wonder and care
the vulnerability of conversations
that I find myself in.
I’ve got meetings.
I’ve got appointments.
I’ve got visits.
I’ve got play.
In all of these encounters,
may I find You,
love You by loving your beloved
through listening with BIG ears today.
