Butterfly on Pickerelweed, Treetops Park, Davie, Florida, August 2013
I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples,
and I will sing praises to you among the nations.
For your steadfast love is higher than the heavens,
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Often and unexpectedly, they change.
But what if something didn't change?
And what if hope incarnate was that thing?
And what if the very thing that will not change
was the very thing that we need the most;
that to which our heart clings with all of its strength?
If someone saw such a hope in us as gives us life,
would we even hesitate to find the words
to describe the author of the hope;
To share with those we love
and for those for whom we care
the best we have to offer?
