Writing to God: Day 6

John 1: 1-5; 14a
The Word Became Flesh

O God who came down and touched the water with your bare hands.  O God who scuffed through the grainy ground, walking from town to town, and got your feet all dusty.  O God who sat around a dinner table with close friends.  Told stories, talked about your day, laughed at a stupid joke.


Come and be near.
Come and listen.
Come and understand.
Come and embrace.

When the waters rise above our heads.  When the dusty road becomes too long and winding to find our way.  When our dinner tables are empty; or seats that were once occupied are no longer.  Or the stories have all been told; the jokes laughed at one too many times.

And silence now fills the space between bites and sips.

When friends who were once so close are now just out of reach.

And be near.
And listen.
And understand.

Come and embrace.

O God, we pray.
