Video
We talked about this song on Easter morning and several of you asked for it … You Say by Lauren Daigle. When I heard it off and on throughout Lent, I was captivated by it…sounds like an Adele, Kelly Clarkson and Pink blend! I was struck during Holy Week that the disciples may have been feeling this way – especially late Thursday night throughout Friday…into Saturday and Sunday…Listen to this a few times. Pure grace.
Inspiration
The Word Sunlight
Down near the bottom
of the crossed-out list
of things you have to do today,
between “green thread”
and “broccoli” you find
that you have penciled “sunlight.”
Resting on the page, the word
is as beautiful, it touches you
as if you had a friend
and sunlight were a present
he had sent you from some place distant
as this morning — to cheer you up,
and to remind you that,
among your duties, pleasure
is a thing,
that also needs accomplishing
Do you remember?
that time and light are kinds
of love, and love
is no less practical
than a coffee grinder
or a safe spare tire?
Tomorrow you may be utterly
without a clue
but today you get a telegram,
from the heart in exile
proclaiming that the kingdom
still exists,
the king and queen alive,
still speaking to their children,
–to any one among them
who can find the time,
to sit out in the sun and listen.

Tony Hoagland, from  Sweet Ruin  (1992)
