Sitting before You,
I soak in the quiet
even as the traffic hurries by outside.
Just for a moment or two,
the chance to tell You
my fears, my worries, my hopes
and to praise You for
Your goodness to me.
I feel Your presence so powerfully
on the altar as You humble Yourself
to reside in the monstrance,
me looking at You
You looking at me.
What tenderness I feel
as I hear that still small Voice say,
“I know you, I love you.”
I kneel at your feet and then depart –
carrying You in my heart
as the world swallows me once again.
