Beloved, sitting here with you, let me tell you about the most marvelous moments from this day - the shyly offered smile that bloomed into raucous generous laughter, the gift that was just what was needed, the birds examining the ground minutely drawing attention to goodness right there. Let me tell you about the most marvelous moments from this day, and the tough ones too, the ones of hurt and disappointment, frustration and emptiness. Let me tell you about my hopes and my dreams, and the faithful promises I want to renew again for another day. Beloved, let me tell you of my day and listen in wonderment to the night that is now unfolding, attending to where love is needed and where love is given, where help is offered and where hope is being made real. Attentive, thankful, ready to help how I can, to cherish what is good, and to whirl in wonder, prepare my heart to open to this unknown unfolding night. Amen.
