Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

This is the Day!

Sometimes Lord
its easy NOT to be in the moment
it is easy to look back
at a day
a week
a month
a life

and get tangled up in blue
wrapped up in
the what if's
and ought's

to second 
and third 
and fourth guess one's self
one's decisions
this was a wild week Lord
much to do
many choices
and frankly Lord
there were too many demands
I couldn't do it all
not even close
and I now I sit
and worry
did I make the right choices
was it OK that I did
instead of that
I sit and remember 
in a less than graceful way
to someone I value
I think of regrets that
need to be expressed
of the people
I need to return to
and to whom I need to say
"I am sorry"
Lord it is a beautiful day
It is a new day
this is the day
that you have made
help me to rejoice
and be glad in it
