The Shape of the Gift

God is an artist.
Has created all I see.

He sends his messages.
I pray for receptivity.

Open to his influence,
I'm eager for possibility.

In this gallery of awareness,
I wait patiently.

Nourished by the Spirit,
I try to imagine
the shape of the gift,

and how to open it
with gratitude,
and proper humility.
