What I was trying to say is that deep
In the week, miles out from Sunday’s
Lesson, it is hard to remember
To be a peacemaker,
To be pure in heart,
To mourn sin,
I forget, even while carrying
The Word in my hands, that
Blessings follow hard on the heels
Of lowliness and lead to higher humility
Like laces back and forth up a tennis shoe.

Blessed are the pure in heart
for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
