Gazing - Patrick Lowry

Can you remember when you caught a glimpse
Of the point between points
Where everything that is or ever will be
Was revealed in a sigh?
Can you remember when all of time and space
Were contained in a grain of sand on God's shore?
- and for a fleeting moment, you knew the truth
And it made you smile,
That we are each an intrepid sailor
On this beautiful voyage between eternities,
From our home across magnificent seas
To our harbor,
Only to find ourselves once again at home -
Made better by the journey.
You wept when you could not find the words,
You cannot explain the Alpha and the Omega,
But you know it,
And I will wait for you there.

  1. Chris - I was listening to burning bushes this afternoon and Joy, Peace, Truth, Life, Christ was just what I needed to hear. Thanks again for visiting with us in Washington this summer. We're coming to California in December and are gonna try to swing by Modesto.
