Graced glimpses

What is the kingdom like?

A place where our words

Fall short

Where goodness

Kindness and

Decency are

The norm

Are not

Remarkable

A community

Where needs are

Cared for

Where everyone is

Valued

 

For now

Glimpses

Must suffice

 

The grace of a young woman

Helping with great care and little fuss

An older blind woman

Get off a train

 

The simple joy

Of young children

As they embrace

Each moment

Of living

 

The happiness and

Acceptance

Radiated

By the man

On his daily walk

 

We’re not there

Yet

But such

Graced glimpses

Remind us of

Where we’re headed

With God’s guidance
