before you get to walk on water…

Sometimes you just have to get into the boat.

Because getting into the boat comes before you get to walk on water.

Every miracle always begins with the first ordinary step of faithfulness.

So I clap as they launch and they grin, us at this edge of beginning.

I watch three brothers get into a boat and watch their oars break the water

of worry’s womb,

and birth a bit more everyday

into this faith

that really believes

that laughs straight into wind

that stands on every shore with golden oar –

willing and smiling — ready to answer His “Come.”
