Saturday prayer: meeting

With respect
And reverence
That the unknown
Between us
Might flower
Into discovery
And lead us
The familiar field
Blind with the weed
Of weariness
And the old walls
Of habit.

~John O'Donahue, "on Meeting A Stranger" from to bless the space between us ~

Beautiful post. Thanks.

Reminds me that God always is inviting us to more...deeper into the fullness of life...deeper into freedom...deeper into love.

You have introduced me to so many poets that I didn't know before. Here is another one that I am looking forward to getting to know. Thank you for this blessing in my life.
