It began as a trickle.
A revelation. Words were dripping.
My soul thawed and I knew God.
Beheld wondrous things of the law,
I knelt in awe.
My heaviness had pressed inward on itself, melting for strength and sanctification. Affliction was for learning the truth and to learn is to be: I am love, my gold and silver. I believe in resurrection because it happened to me too, and my mouth is alive to answer you. l turn my eyes from beholding vanities because I have your consideration, and I am quickened as the glacial waters flowing with great peace, loving you. We shall go back to the fertile valley of Psalms, where I first knew the earth. Life ends and begins with celebration.
