Keep awake

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    

Keep awake, for you do not know when the Beloved is coming.          — Matthew 24.42

You can't tell beforehand which manger will receive him. You won't expect how you will be met.

You don't know when the Beloved will appear before you, when your vision will break through the surface to the holiness within, when your belovedness will become evident.

You can't predict how the One will come to you, in what ordinary person offering you grace, needing forgiveness.

You never know when you might see God in yourself shimmering, breathing, calm.

Of the Present One we only catch fleeting glimpses. So keep your eyes open. Stay alert. Watch.

Weather Report

Partly clear as a high pressure area of Having Been Here and Done That, producing heavy overcast, is dissipated by wonder and gratitude. Expect coming, with patches of disclosure and isolated moments when the sun (which has always been there) breaks through.
