On Holy Thursday

Jesus is present

God is present – with us.

Part of the reason

for the eucharist

is to remember

the presence of Jesus – with us

whenever we gather.

We give thanks for God’s many blessings

especially at this time

when it is easy to focus

on what we don’t have,

rather than the joy and mystery

of the love that binds us.

The glimpses of God’s wonder

in the sunny day,

the bird’s song,

the baby’s cry

and the intricate, yet ephemeral, beauty

of the spider’s web.

Because we forget,

we must remember.

God – with us, always.
