Since I was analyzing Florence + The Machine lyric at Eastertime, here's her song "Between Two Lungs." It always reminds me of the life-giving breath of the Holy Spirit. May our souls be filled with His grace and gifts today. (Don't you just love how Confirmation comes with a clearly itimized list of powers?)
Gone are the days of begging,
The days of theft.
No more gasping for a breath.
The air has filled me head to toe
And I can see the ground far below.
I have this breath and I hold it tight
And I keep in my chest with all my might.
I pray to God this breath will last as I gasp...
