Wednesday Riff: Honest To God

Thank you Lord that we can be honest with you,
That we don’t have to wear the masks we feel we must wear in life.
Thank you that nothing will shock you,
That we needn’t put on the guise of strength when we are really weak,
That we need not wear success, when we have failed again.
Thank you that you understand the languages
Of loss and disappointment, failure and fragility,
Thank you that you deal in fresh starts,
Understanding the brightest of lights and the grimmest of nights.
The Good Shepherd not afraid to get his hands dirty
In order to help the sheep.
Amen
