Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.
Morning. I walk among careless trees
without demands or opinions. They do not want.
Everything already is. Nothing is required.
Soon enough I will be good, I will be worthy,
but first the root, the sanctuary, where nothing is required of me.
This alone is where I come from, where I return.
Later, at the table, I pause, released.
I am with you, nothing lacking.
Soon enough I will launch out into my day again,
pull taut the lines on my little boat,
calculate the breeze, strain at the waves— but first
I rest in this little harbor of time. Here, in your silence,
where everything is given, nothing is required,
I wait upon you and fulfill all righteousness.
Evening, I lie down. Nothing is required.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve __________________ Steve Garnaas-Holmes Unfolding Light www.unfoldinglight.net
