sometimes i feel too human.
mistakes are all too familiar.
i am finding God to be a mysterious being, the searching
only giving way to small glimpses. i see
him in his creation: in the shades
the sun portrays, in the face of poverty,
in the sound of muffled laughter, in the unknown.
there’s a sense of freedom and fear. this life only
limited by myself getting in the way.
Lord, grant me the grace of wonder. surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of Your universe. delight me to see how Your Christ plays in ten thousand places, lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not His, of the Father through the features of men’s faces. each day enrapture me with Your marvelous things without number. i do not ask to see the reason for it all; i ask only to share the wonder of it all. amen. -joshua abraham heschel
