Lent 3

House Finch from James Scott Smith 2 small

The chambers of my heart are open for God to fly in. For there is an altar here to his name, and like the sparrow in the psalm he comes to make his nest before it. In love, I do the same thing in his heart. I in you and you in me.

See Psalm 83:4, John 17:21

8. In Flight


A world turned upside down, for you the work of moments, for us a lifetime’s wisdom. That everything can become other in a split second, or turned “right” way up again as swiftly. That it doesn’t matter which or why, only that we fly. That balletic grace is given even to the smallest, dullest wings.
