Our eyes are open wide
As we walk into our familiar sacred space
For the first time in over a year.
Colors are brighter,
The sanctuary is larger
And the sounds of our voices, together, are luscious.
We swim in our profound appreciation for what we once took for granted
And we can’t stop smiling at our friends
And marveling at how good they look to us.
We breathe in their smells,
It’s so excitingl!
And at last
We can pray and we will be heard
We can mourn and we will be seen.
We are not alone.
Blessed Holy Wholeness
We give thanks and pray that we will remember how this felt
And next year
When we are bored.
Look at us,
Here we are.
It is good.
