On the Occasion of a Wedding


I woke, dreaming of brides and grooms,
Moses and shrubs, strange, unconsumed,
Souls shocked by unexpectedness.

Called to experience by name
Deliverance begun, unearned,
In promise given and received.

Rooted in ancient history,
Promise-created memory,
Lived faith before these witnesses.

Amid laundry and forgiveness,
Joy, sorrow, and forgetfulness,
Find hope...your unexpected rest.
