love is alive, even yet

jen's spinach artichoke dip, tommy's stories of being at sea, rebekka's ever-curious wide-eyed stare and easy smile, my family attempting BVS games, bing crosby's blue blue eyes, walking into cloverdale's darkened sanctuary and finally feeling relief that in the midst - in the midst! - of all the chaos and messiness and annoyance and illness and darkness and noise there exists this quiet stillness of wonder and awe at the incarnate god, sitting in sue's living room and listening to her tinkling laugh that's been a part of my aural vocabulary since before i was born, and welcoming God-with-us with candlelight and harmony.
