These mornings, when the world seems so broken,
I skip the news and social media.
Instead, I go outside and contemplate the sky …
Morning dawning in the firmament.
I watch the creatures around me
Doing creaturely things:
Hopping, flying, walking, breathing.
I am, in my little life,
Part of a great, still-beautiful world.
I breathe myself into union
with the One who is never broken.
