Thought for the Day

Friday in Advent 3, December 19 2008

By Jan L. Richardson, in Night Visions, United Church Press. (c) 1998 (out of print)

This restless hope
is what drives me
beyond the weariness
beyond the discomfort
beyond every thought
that what I carry within me
will never come to birth.

This restless hope
beyond all reason
flutters beneath my heart
and grows within my soul.

It is beyond me,
and it is of me,
and it is delivering me
