The glass of water says

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

The wind says, “Let me hold you.”
A cloud mouths your name in silent payer.
A bird intones an ancient chant,
“Beauty nearby! Beauty nearby!”.

You walk under the street light,
an angel with one wing,
and she says,
“You, too, have this gift.”

You cross the bridge,
patient on its hands and knees,
and it says, “Walk over my back
to your love.”

You go along the frozen river
and the black water moving underneath
says, “Already something in you
is arriving at God.”

The steps you climb say,
“Yes, the whole world holds you in its lap.”
The door says, “Go through! Go through!”
The wastebasket says, “I will relieve your burden.”

The glass of water, with a twinkle in its eye,
says, “Yes, it’s true. Beforehand,
long ago, we all agreed, all of us,
to bless you, and to go on blessing you.”

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
