“…put your body where the light is…”

“Put your body where the light is…”
A Lenten Prayer by Sarah Are

I have come to believe
That it’s harder to cry under an open sky.
So when life falls apart, throw open the windows.
Invite the sun into your shadows.
Lie in the grass and let the sun mistake you for flowers.
Maybe this is step one in cultivating—
For flowers do not grow by mistake.
They need the sun, just like we need love,
And time,
And the grace to try again.
So put your body where the light is.
You’ll find God there.
She is warmth.
You will know it.
And you will feel strong.
So put your body where the light is.
Maybe this is step one.
