Return to wonder.. a psalm of longing

I want to return to wonder

beyond the cynicism that envelopes me,

every year at this time….

the pressure,

the commercialism,

the expectations

they are all back,

adverts abound filled with the things we (don’t) need.

Once again perfection and presentation are demanded….

but…

I want to return to wonder

+

I want to return to wonder,

to move beyond the cynicism that envelopes me,

I want to find solace

in the story of ultimate vulnerability,

God become flesh, and not just flesh,

vulnerable flesh,

dependant flesh…

new life given,

eternity encased in flesh…

+

I want to return to wonder,

to breathe in and believe in the miracle afresh,

a light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness will not,

cannot overcome it…..

+

I want to return to wonder,

for right now I find myself in the dark,

I need that gentle, vulnerable light

to be kindled in my heart again…

+

I want to return to wonder….

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and a grandson). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
