Light of the world

           You are the light of the world.
         Let your light so shine before others,
         that by the light of your good works
         they may see
         and give glory to the Beloved in heaven.

                  —Matthew 5.14, 16

In the beginning
when God began to create you
God said, “Let there be light.”

Not your accomplishments,
not even your good works,
but your being
is light.
Your good works are only the glass.
You are the light.

Let your life be glass,
transparent to the light.

It doesn’t matter that others see you,
only that they see.

It’s not always what they see
but their seeing
that glorifies God.

Weather Report
Clearing,
as the mass of divine presence
moves through, increasing visibility.
Expect precipitation in some form…
(the natives have a hundred words for miracles.)
