The Future is Possible

the green of Jesus
is breaking the ground
and the sweet
smell of delicious Jesus
is opening the house and
the dance of Jesus music
has hold of the air and
the world is turning
in the body of Jesus and
the future is possible
~Lucille Clifton “Spring Song”
A week later,
the rains have returned
and all seems grey
and ordinary again.
But He is extraordinary
even when we settle back to routine.
He is breaking
opening
turning around
this world of ours.
He shows us what love meant
then and now-
our future is possible
together forever.
In Jesus’ resurrected presence,
the invisible kingdom of God
has become visible reality. 

The word has taken shape,
love has become real. 

Jesus showed what love meant. 
His word and life proved
that love knows no bounds. 

Nothing is impossible
for the faith that springs
from the fire of love.
~Eberhard Arnold
