Another sign, O Spirit, please — another sign.

You have poured the oil
for a healing sign,
and it is good.

You have struck up music
for a joyous sign,
and it is good.

You have gathered warriors
for an encouraging sign,
and it is good.

I have felt the soft oil,
my heart has beat with the music,
and each day I find myself in community,

but — O, Gracious Spirit — please, another sign:

a field of barley for daily bread,
a cool cave for daily rest,
a cedar log for daily gratitude.

My God, don’t let this life run out of signs!

on 1 Chronicles 14:1-2
