Where are you? Are you in the sinning, the suffering, the walk away from honor? Or are you in the dying, the surrender? (And do you die only to be redeemed? Or because you are in your time?)
Did you find the step toward the truth, into the everywhere, into all time? Or are you lifted into the ever after, ascended into the next?
Where is your faith?
I’m always asking myself this question.
That’s what I give.
I don’t feel fit to rejoice; I’m not even sure this is the day for it. I keep thinking that celebrating the proof is less sure than feeling the thrill of the faith - before the test.
I cast myself into the shade for my doubt and then remind myself I am made in His image, and so my self is a good and worthy self, even with my flaws, my questions.
There, I find I am most connected, receiving what I think is the message of mine and all faiths.
In all your turmoil, your fear, your hunger and cold, with all that is needed and left unpaid, for all the days you do not walk in hand with your brother, for all that hurts you still there is and always there is room for redemption. Go that way.
Peace to you.
