“We live in a world of theophanies. Holiness comes wrapped in the
ordinary. There are burning bushes all around you. Every tree is full of
angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb. Life wants to lead you
from crumbs to angels, but this can happen only if you are willing to
unwrap the ordinary by staying with it long enough to harvest its

yes, i’ve been quiet.
i need to be.
there are things ruffling and lingering and sticking to my chest
a cold that won’t go away.
it’s all a blessing,
just a little uncomfortable in the process.

whatever it may be,
i feel sure that it is all perfectly as it needs to be.
that i am exactly where i am supposed to be.
all this stickyness is propelling me forward
into a world and a future and a promise and a destiny

and that is so precious,
so beautiful,
so needed.

everything is a blessing.
