for the goodness I do not have.
out to the pond and all the way God has
given us such beautiful lessons.
I was never a quick scholar but sulked
and hunched over my books past the hour
and the bell; grant me, in your mercy,
a little more time.

expecting to be told
to pack nothing,
except the prayers which,
with this thirst,
I am slowly learning.
a chance to share the sacred ordinary.
a warm invitation to visit
and leave a word of encouragement along the way.
come let's walk out into the beauty that waits for all of us.
