It was a night for eternity.
We were a family; whole people because the Spirit was working and we filled in each other’s gaps. We were sirens and the sea threw itself at us.
Joy Unspeakable and Full of Glory.
The sky would not give up her stars so we made our own and wondered at the strength of light and love.
God is with us, in us, through us.
We laughed and ached and delighted in the image of God on every man. The ache was beauty, but also pain. We weren’t there yet. The night ended. The fire died. Cold descended with the heavy dew. But it won’t always. It won’t forever.
For there is coming a day and it will be, just as I AM.
