Lent 9

How good it is!
How good it is to be in God's day!
How good it is to bask in the warmth of God's love!

How good it is to taste
daily mercies and sweet delights;
to savor a moment of silence
like chocolate melting on the tongue;
to laugh, to jest, to care in community
and feel the ego's brittleness cracking loose.

How good it is!

How good it is to sing
praise and blues alike in a loud voice;
to give enthusiastic melody to
the heart's leaps and its heights;
or to moan in discordant tune
knowing that God intertwines a harmony.

How good it is!

How good it is to be bound up
and held tight for the work of healing;
to know the stretch marks and scars
that make for wholly human life;
to grasp for the mystery of stars,
to be interconnected across spaces.

How good it is!

How good it is to be in God's day!
How good it is to bask in the warmth of God's love!
