(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in Swedish living for ‘ett ögonblick’ [a moment] just this daily leavened bread”)
You have lived many moments, bad and good.
You have accumulated much “had been.”
It’s just this moment that your likelihood
is grace, just a moment that you live in.
My anxiety can’t live a moment.
It needs a past and a future to lurk.
If I live just this moment, bestowment
of grace, just a moment as His artwork.
A moment to know that God is our Grace.
Just a moment to know we’re safely held.
Can we feel God’s Peace in our anyplace?
Oh, yeah! Can we feel now our angst expelled?
Anything more than a moment is bleak.
God had the Swedes call it “ett ögonblick.”
