"Wonderfully and Fearfully Made"


The time will come


when, with elation


you will greet yourself arriving


at your own door, in your own mirror


and each will smile at the other's welcome,



and say, sit here. Eat.


You will love again the stranger who was your self.


Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart


to itself, to the stranger who has loved you



all your life, whom you ignored


for another, who knows you by heart.


Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,



the photographs, the desperate notes,


peel your own image from the mirror.


Sit. Feast on your life.

Psalm 139

13For You formed my inmost being;

You knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14I praise You,

for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Marvelous are Your works,

and I know this very well.

15My frame was not hidden from You

when I was made in secret,

when I was woven together

in the depths of the earth.

16Your eyes saw my unformed body;

all my days were written in Your book

and ordained for me

before one of them came to be.

17How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God,

how vast is their sum!

18If I were to count them,

they would outnumber the grains of sand;

and when I awake,

I am still with You.
