Blackbirds is a reflection written by Maria Antoine on her second CD of Meditations and Songs. It is about that time early in the morning as the dawn chorus begins. The blackbird is the bird that usually starts and all the other birds join in. Moreover, we have a choir of harmonious singing from our feathered friends. It can be uplifting and a beautiful way to start the day, listening to the birds. Most of us sleep through this lovely awakening but it is a worthwhile exercise to get up early on the odd occasion to hear the birds start their day.
Blackbirds meditation is about how God is constantly communicating with us. He wants to be in our lives and reminds us of His presence. He showers us with gifts through His creation around us and through the people we meet each day. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit grants us grace to uplift our minds into the reality of God’s presence. Moreover, our words need to reflect the truth that is God.
Especially relevant is Maria Antoine’s words narrated by Suzanne in this inspired piece.
Our Irish blessings Meditations and Songs present the word of God from a different perspective. Also, they come through the prayer life of Maria Antoine. They are original songs of praise written and sung by Maria. The CDs are available to download or buy as hard copies and as downloadable individual music tracks.
As a result, A Blessed Call to Love have put together a number of these songs and meditations in CD form because we want them to go out into the world. We hope hearts may be touched and comforted. Maria hopes that these Irish blessings music songs will help people find peace in their hearts in the stillness of God’s love.
