Who Knew

He is dirty
She smells bad
Hungry – thirsty
Ill – lost

People hurry by
Don’t touch me
Stay away
… Nice tidy beings

A song swells
Notes ring like bells
The sun breaks out
Soft breeze drifts

They sing amidst the trash
Hold, forth, great beauty
Who knew
The blessed of God

So often we miss God because it doesn’t “look” like what we think God should look like.  But, what does God look like?  Who knows – no one – so look for God in the unexpected; dirty, shining, poor, rich, hard working, lazy, all are God.  God looks like the unknowable, like anything I can’t describe.

  1. Lovely reflection! I remember reading about Mother Theresa who says we will find Him in the “distressing disguise” of the people we meet, perhaps those we would rather not come in contact with, the ones we would rather turn away.

    A most blessed Easter to you Ruth, may God’s richest blessings be yours,
