advent journal: who I saw today


    Here’s Who I Saw Today:

    a high school friend who met
    me for breakfast and a walk
    around Midtown Manhatthan;

    the man who drove the shuttle
    to JFK fighting through traffic
    and still had energy to smile;

    the TSA identification checker
    who never changed his facial
    expression as he worked;

    the server at our favorite
    Mexcian restaurant in Durham
    who welcomed us home —

    all indicators that Christ
    will be born again — but this
    time piece by piece by peace
