Were you laughing too God?
That day, just a few weeks ago
When the autumn trees out my Philly window disappeared in the snow?
This Georgia girl giggled with glee
And went out to feel it, taste it, and listen to its quiet.
In the background my colleagues laughed “Just wait till April…"
And they’re right.
I want to remember a bit of the joy of that day from the view out my window.
I pray that you’ll always delight me, and all your people, with new perspectives
In unexpected and wonder-filled ways.
Transform the views out our windows throughout this season.
Surprise us with delight and wonder in all that you are creating in our midst.
Especially when we get into our grooves (and ruts)
Remind us of the power of a pivot.
May we courageously and boldly step into new places you are calling us -
Places where your transforming love
Is already eagerly waiting to make us smile,
and ready to make us whole.
