Lent 16

I look for you in my own little world: in the blue dome and encircling horizons, in the familiar routes and routines, in my self-contained snow globe of life sitting on the tourist shop shelf. Many days I am content to find you there in the swirling joy, content to move within my bubble, content to keep you in my microcosm.

Yet (risking that you might really do this) I pray: Break open my world. Knock my snow globe off the shelf so that it bursts into pieces, and all that is pretty and neat spills out, and the horizons are lost... and I discover where you truly are.
