Lent 27

Sarah laid back her head and laughed
to find the holy in the ridiculous,
and I give the Spirit praise for divine humor:

Praise for the dried-out breast that can suckle new life!
Praise for the mystery of cells rebuilding and healing!
Praise that wholeness is always built out of brokenness!
Praise for the absurdity of an awkward heron in flight!
Praise in the dance that will one day defeat all wars!
Praise for the impossibility that bread & wine create a body!
Praise for the resurrection of laughter rising from a weary soul!

With my grin behind my hand, I read Sarah's tale
and I remember my own life's tall tale
...and I laugh and laugh and laugh.
