Breath of Fresh Air




The wisest one-word sentence? Breathe.   Terri Guillemets


Psalm 33:6 International Children’s Bible 
The sky was made at the Lord’s command.
By the breath from his mouth, he made all the stars.


Job 33:4 International Children’s Bible 
The Spirit of God created me.
The breath of God All-Powerful gave me life.


Job 32:8 International Children’s Bible 
But it is the spirit in a person that gives him understanding.
It is the breath of God All-Powerful in him.


Genesis 2:7 Easy-to-Read Version 
Then the Lord God took dust from the ground and made a man. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nose, and the man became a living thing.





Breathe we do it without thinking breathe inhale exhale the pattern that is life breathe the process of respiration produces energy by taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide breathe we were never taught never instructed never practiced we just do it breathe sometimes when I think too much I can get out of rhythm the pattern is broken and I forget how to breathe sometimes when I am tense or bothered or wired or angry I don’t breathe my body cries out for release if I’d let go and breathe I’d feel relaxed refreshed and at peace breathe Lord You gave me life in my very first intake of air breathe You blessed me and continue to bless me greatly breathe


Reading and writing uses pauses and stops through punctuation. Without these markings, meaning gets lost in the multitude of words. To take in and release life-giving air gives me pause. Taking deep breaths helps me stop, take in the moment, appreciate all You gave me through this gift of life, and release a grateful Amen.
