Luke 6:38 "... for the measure you give will be the measure you get back" (New Revised Standard Version)
I want to get, to treasure, to hold
I am fragile, brittle
- You know, You made me -
so needy, so vulnerable, so seen.
Others know me as a giver
planting hope here, a dream there,
strength for the way.
But You know me deeply,
see the layers of apparent wisdom
peeling and flaking,
disclosing a darkly present grasping,
I give You my hardest gift,
the vapours of my inly emptiness.
Spirit now my giving
with Your full presence,
in good measure
