Pause for Prayer: MONDAY 8/8

Image: MacJams

I thank God
for something as simple
as a warm summer's day
and for time,
plenty of time,
to sit in the sun, at the shore,
soaking in the warmth
of the heart of the solar system, hoping
that as the sun seeped into my body
so the very heat of God's presence might permeate
the marrow of my soul...

And I thank God
for the constant, gentle breezes
sweeping over bared flesh,
spiriting me to prayer,
reminding me of God's gentle approach...

I thank God
for Yo Yo Ma, as if he were sitting by my car
parked hard by the shore's edge,
playing Bach's unaccompanied cello suites:
the digital mystery of dashboard music
floating over the sandy beach just for me --
and for any passersby...

I thank you God
for something as simple
as a warm afternoon
and time, plenty of time,
to sit at the shore
and soak in the heat of your presence,
the warmth of your love and the surety
that even as the sun burns in August skies,
so, always, your love burns within me...
