Cleansing Fire

 What if prayer is a furnace? 
    When we confess, every sin and every evil thing 
       is burnt away into ashes. 

          But every prayer in line with Life and Love
            —stemming from God's Spirit—
                 is refined like gold and silver. 

                   What if that? 

                       And lest we forget, 
                         even ashes are used in making soap...


Dedicated to Sarah, Kasey, and Marit

    1. I have been reading your Mary Oliver book a good deal since you lent it to me... I read something in there and wrote this as a response of sorts. So, thank YOU for sharing your book (and yourself) with me. =)
