To Be Complete

226 - Copy

Spiritual reality becomes food for a starving carnal soul;

for without truth and hope, we wanderers are dead already.

And what appears partial now

will, in God’s presence, be

complete.

Fences

Some fences are for defying.

[I found these old fence posts (get it...fenceposts!) in my WP back files.  I guess I had made them and never posted.]

My Book of Uncommon Prayers: Your Image in Us

375 - Copy

When we put so much energy into seeking love,

seeking approval,

we leave little else for giving love,

giving approval.

May all the inner chaos be turned inside out so as to better reflect Your image in us—

to be a true follower:

needed instead of needy.

The Wait of the World

020 - Copy

The wait of the world when the press is strong on every side,

within, without,

and we feel guilty for complaining in the presence of so much blessing,

but the pain is constant

and a constant reminder that we are not home yet;

and so we wait under the weight—

the weight of this alienation,

this strange mix of great dark and hope-filled light,

ever looking up and on,

letting go more and more the grip on these rags and rages that wear and wear.

But we work on here,

and we hope here,

and we wait here in the world.

 

“There is no time for anything but getting ready to go.”

This juvenile white-crowned sparrow (oops, corrected again . . . it is a house sparrow) has not learned as yet to fear the lady with the black clicking box. :-)
