minds as quiet as time

How long we wait, with minds as quiet as time,
Like sentries on a tower.
How long we watch, by night, like the astronomers.

Heaven, when will we hear you sing,
Arising from our grassy hills,
And say: "The dark is done, and Day
Laughs like a Bridegroom in His tent, the lovely sun!"

How long we wait with minds as dim as ponds,
While stars swim slowly homeward in the water of our west!

Heaven, when will we hear you sing?

My Soul Waits

I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is lovingkindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
[psalm 130]

A Journal Entry: February 13, 2012

I sit here, on this rainy morning, with much on my heart.
So many things I want to write, but how do I even begin to express it all?

Maybe words will come eventually, maybe not.

Either way, on this rainy morning, I am sure of one thing.

in all our afflictions,
he is afflicted;
and the angel of his presence saves us;
he lifts us up and
carries us all our days.
