Waves of Lake Michigan

While doing spiritual coaching with a group of women this past week, I took time to walk along Lake Michigan. The waves released a long ago song and I was reminded of this Inuit prayer.

And I thought over again
My small adventures
As with a shore-wind I drifted out
In my kayak
And thought I was in danger,

My fears,
Those small ones
That I thought so big
For all the vital things
I had to get and to reach.

And yet, there is only
One great thing,
The only thing:
To live to see in huts and on journeys
The great day that dawns,
And the light that fills the world.

~INUIT SONG
