I want my words to draw circles, like two hands in the air. I want the nothing that they circle marry the nothing that they capture inside. For those who see, to say, what an extraordinary marriage! For those who don’t see, to say, that nothing actually happened!

For this is the only way I would do justice to the testimony I bear today of a Love which kept me alive. A Love which kept my thoughts of God alive. A Love which kept God alive in me.

I am a circle…

Of Ted the words…the hands…..

Thanks be to you and to the Spirit that lives in you because great things are born from small……like seeds in the wind no one knows when or where… one knows….no one knows….
