Today’s text

Psalm 90 (paraphrase)
You gather those who love You as friends returning from a long journey, giving rest to their souls. You anoint them with the balm of understanding, healing wounds of the past. … Increase the Light within us--O Beloved, hear our prayer.

Home once more

Long we wander, wondering,
doubting if ever we come
to the place Love filled
us, once more to know the
home we do not choose
but which chooses us.

Lost, our souls convinced
moments of heart-full
knowing forever gone
never to be known
once more in sweetness
of tears and faces
glowing, lit within by
Light uncreated
by human hands.

Sun rises, a new day
surprises birthing hope,
You the Lighthouse piercing
dark clouds once more
finding our lostness amid
waves that sicken
the soul, drawing us
home again to know
the Love thought lost amid
the living we must do.

Light finds and shines in
not only on souls once
lost amid the waves,
found and filled; prayer
answered once more, wounds
once bleeding find healing, no,
Healing Light, again finds
them, once more home in
the Love who is this
world’s Heart.

Pr. David L. Miller
