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.
