Strange…

Mount Rainier (from one of my many flights to/from Seattle). Nothing quite gives me that moment of calm and wonder of God's creation and work in the world then seeing something as beautiful and amazing as this.
Mount Rainier (from one of my many flights to/from Seattle).
                                                                                              Nothing quite gives me that moment of calm, peace and wonder of and in God’s creation and work in the world than seeing something as beautiful and amazing as this.

I have never claimed to be a poet or a good writer.  I enjoy writing though, so thus I blog.  A strange thing happened to me after attending a worship service yesterday though, I sat down and I started writing with a pencil on a scratch piece of paper.  What came from that strange experience kind of looks like a poem (admittedly it doesn’t really follow any structural rules though).  It’s not profound, and doesn’t really rhyme.  But here it is.  I share it here with you to see if you have any thoughts?

Strange…

Strange is how I feel

when new in community.

Strange is how I feel

when no longer in a leadership capacity.

I feel strange

when uncertainty seems a norm.

I feel strange

when in the wilderness of life.

Hope is what I feel

in spite of this uncertainty.

Hope is what I feel

in the face and space of new opportunity.

I have hope

that all will be well.

I have hope

that my ears, eyes, nose, hands, feet, heart, and head are being used and called and will be used and called.

Even though its strange for me,

I know it will be okay.

Even though its strange for me,

I know God is here.
