You know that time
when you put your phone down
so you could attend to me instead?
Or that moment when I was starving,
and about to eat my 20 gram protein bar in the car
but saw a homeless man in the intersection,
and chose to go hungry –
handing him the bar through my open window
with a smile
and no regrets.
Or, how about
that day when I was terribly hurt and angry
and simply let it all go,
suddenly, and with faith and forgiveness
so I could refocus
on something larger than me,
beyond the anger
and the suffocating hurt.
Both just disappeared into a peaceful feeling.
There is a thread –
powerful in its connection
through these moments.
It seems to show
that when we step aside –
dare another way,
beautiful things can happen.
It makes me wonder…
What if God is the thread?
And the thread connects us to Love
And, well, everything that matters?
And what if God needs us?
Needs us to get out of our own way
and notice the thread?
WE MAKE GOD HAPPEN?
