The never-ending wonder of God

There is far more love on earth
and in heaven
than we have dreamed
or thought or felt
or perceived or imagined….
or that we shall ever know….
and it is a great comfort to me
to touch a moment or share a glimpse
of each new unfolding wonder

….speaking words into being………….
recognizing the patterns of the divinity
of words and numbers and forms……..
and the balancing of all things in creation…..
leaving clues everywhere
to discover
where the creator has been….
nowhere more wonderfully than
within our selves.

If we truly look and see
and hear and touch and taste and feel….
and gaze and behold
and ponder what is around us……………
we would be stricken with silence and awe……..
in the beholding of it…………
in the miracle of each moment….
the beauty……..the balance……
the precision…….the intricacy…the power….
the delicacy…….the perspective
and the continuing revelation of a world…..
a universe…..a dimension….
a sky filled with
the trail of a creator
that is incomprehensible….
and yet so tenderly intimate
in the ways we are invited
to become a part of the miracle of life
and vision unfolding
in the light and illuminating presence of a love
that surrounds and receives
and heals and makes everything new
in a flash…..
i feel more than i could ever express….

surrendering is my loving response….
how blessed we are
in countless and infinitely new ways
how perfectly blessed
and challenged
is this existence
as we are continuously invited to flow
in the unfolding of each new day
and present moment
of beauty and novelty and humor and laughter…..
pouring out and covering the earth
with wondrous and ever evolving forms
and feelings and truths of life

whatever we do
and however we respond
an expanding love
is our creative and surrendering response
to the gracious gift
of a beloved that is always
more than we know

i sigh and savor it all…….
and sing and smile and bask
in the music of the spheres
in the divine light of the creator
who so generously allows us
to share in it all

i am welcoming the dawn
being created within us
which soon will color the sky
with generosity and beauty yet unseen

our marvelous mystics
smuggled the truth of the treasures
into timelessness and placelessness
to reach our hearts
and the cup is filled and overflowing
as we drink
the light of love with them
