Howl-Worthy

Rising in the northeast about 7:00 pm tonight will be the first full moon of 2022.  It was dubbed the Wolf Moon by Native Americans and early colonists because this was the time of the year that wolves howled the most.  Originally thought to be a cry of hunger, biologists now say it is more of a claim of presence.  Here I am.

Here I Am

In 1981, Dan Schutte wrote the hymn, "Here I Am".  It is based on the verses in Isaiah 6:8 and 1 Samuel 3. 
Wolf, Night, Moon, Sky, Landscape
Here I Am


Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart


I, who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?


Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart
       ------Dan Schutte

Howl-worthy.
I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

The Lord called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!” So he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you called me.”

    Hi Gloria, I like the hymn- think I know it. Like the scriptures you’ve selected. Like the story about the wolf/husky. Good start to 2022.
