The water’s surface swiftly responds to the least stirring of a breeze. What was a faithful mirror, true and flat, becomes a pattern of crazy dimples, curved reflections fit for a funhouse. Can I be just as responsive to the wind of the Spirit? Am I not 60% water?

Lovely photo!

Thanks for your comments on my watery prayer. Of course, as good Christians, we want to have a flat and true surface to reflect God’s love, but that is not where writing this prayer took me. A wonderful poet, Gerard Manley Hopkins, approved of dappled things, so perhaps he would think well of crazy dimples as the work of the Holy Spirit.
