I love to consider the stars
That I am inconsequential
Ok not really,
but there is something comforting that I am small
in a great huge universe
That there are many humans and we collectively matter
more than my small mistakes.
Jesus Christ, I love the weather
That I cannot accurately tell you if it will rain
or hurricane 4 hour from now
Much less what it will be like tomorrow
It keeps me humble in all the right ways.
Holy Spirit, I do not always love my body
it needs food and water all the time
and sleep, and exercise;
its so needy, and I’m not very good at listening to it.
I don’t know why I don’t appreciate it like I do the stars
and the weather.
I guess because it’s mine and I’m supposed to be in charge it.
But you and I know that it is really yours God, and that it is still
imperfect and as unpredictable as the weather
and as colossal as a universe.
God I wonder at all the systems of the world
That you have made them just so.
And maybe be ok with the fact that
You were not so into perfection huh?
You were more into variety and beauty and multiplicity.
How beautiful is the fact that you are a multeous God
(Yes I made that word up for you God)
I love you,
