I don’t know what it is that
But sometimes yes, it rushes me,
and hurls me into a day where
I begin already behind
not quite ready
sometimes about something
I can’t even name.
And then –
I catch you in the periphery
a glance across the room.
Where light is changing, even rising
and I have to pause and see.
It was a fleeting moment
impossible to hold
A glance to remind me I am loved
and you are still creating days
of grace for us to discover together.
You are here.
God, help us pause long enough to
catch your glance from across
whatever distance you come today. Amen.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.Psalm 46:10-11
The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob in our fortress.
