Relearning our Loveliness

The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don't flower,
because everything flowers from within, of self-blessing.
Though sometimes it's necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and retell it in words and touch
it is lovely.....

The suspense is agonizing.

The doctors have to wait until tomorrow for the results of some of the tests. Matt may have to go right from work to the hospital--although he was told not to be alarmed by that, as they may simply want to run more tests.

He's also been told not to think about it too much.

Right.

Thank you for your prayers over the days and weeks. Please continue to keep Matt, his family, and myself in your prayers.

Definitely, Rainbow. I am on a trip with some of my Sophia sisters, and we will pray for him and you all at Eucharist tonight.
