The words of the poet, Elizabeth Alexander keep coming back to me:
The words shimmer,
light up and sway with hope and determination.
A demand to give attention to all that matters, to that which brings joy.
A sharp desire to become.
God, is this your prayer for each of us?
That we will crave radiance, that we will seek this radiance with
our whole heart and being.
In this craving, in this radiance is your spirit, Holy Spirit
waiting and laughing with joy
Craving radiance with each of us with every inhale of life,
every deep breath of wonder?
Lord, may it be so!
