God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.
John 1:5

We are
diamonds in the rough

Spiritual
beings of sacred brilliance

Light
bouncing off our multi-sided bodies

As we walk
unaware sometimes

Through all
the Bethlehems, Galilees and

And those
dreaded Jerusalems of our lives

Though
sometimes we forget

God is with
us

In us

Rising all
around us

From every
act of love

Big or
small

Noticed or
ignored

Intended or
undeserved

There is
nothing that can stop

The
invisible rays refracting

Emanating
and surrounding

The miracle
of God gestated and birthed

Shining
through the darkness

Of our
every waking and dreaming moment

Both now
and forever

Amen.
