Psalm 69:30

magnify
MAGNIFY
bring into focus
Love
Grace
Community

o my soul
MAGNIFY
be a magnifying lens for
the Light
the Holy
the Splendid

sort of like the bright sun
focusing in on
the tiny ant
as an intense spotlight
but in reverse
and without burning:

my soul (the ant) in all its littleness
radiating
reflecting
even, impossibly, enlarging
The One Who Is Already Magnificent
to the umpteenth degree

o my soul
MAGNIFY
the Intimate & Inescapable Sacred
with praise and thanksgiving
so that somehow
the Brilliant becomes even moreso
