I do not want to say
that we find you, God because
the truth is it is you who find us
always; that is why, I prefer saying
So often, you find us but we do
not meet you at all because we
look for you, always expecting you
in great things and spectacular sights
and happenings, in shows where we are
the focus not you, where we are heard
and you are disregarded.
Teach us to be patient and silent
like Elijah, awaiting for your passing
in the most simple and ordinary things
like the tiny whispering sound.
O dearest Lord, forgive us in our
many inanities of trying to meet you in
great things while we indulge in little
things we consider as harmless and
nothing at all like a simple look at women
filled with lust that reveal great tendencies of
corruption within us.
May we learn to take care of the little
things in our lives that truly matter most
when aggregated into a whole. Amen.
