However it is we pray
We use too many words.
With this and that.
Don’t get me wrong.
All of that matters.
Thank you matters.
Help pulls others into the circle of our lives.
Wow stands us face to face with beauty
And the mystery which is more than our small selves.
But with all that said
What really matters is that we listen.
Listen to the beating of our own hearts.
Listen to the rhythm of the world around us.
Listen for the cries of those who find themselves in need.
Listen for the whisper of that which we know and name as God
Reaching out to us
Calling out to us
In the midst of it all.
