Reading Powers' words suddenly drew me back to another chapter of my life; one early in my return to Church. A then-priest then-friend of mine gave me a book of Jessica Powers' poetry and this helped me to find my way when I felt lost.
Then I went looking around and found this gem.
We have nothing, that is for certain. All is gift, all is from God. And no gift is proper for such a generous God.
So today, I will simply do as Powers' suggests; I will gather my sigh, hold my hands and my heart up and reveal that great emptiness to this great God that brings us from nothing to everything.
Thanks be to God.
