ook0WmaHow beautiful upon the mountain
are the feet of the messenger who brings good news.
How beautiful upon the plains;
How beautiful upon the sidewalks and the roads, the hallways and the aisles,
are the feet of your messengers, God, who bring good news.

The bad news comes at us from all sides–
from the TV and radio and internet,
from family and friends and neighbors.
In the midst of the bad news,
we can lose sight of you,
and we can lose sight of ourselves.

But how beautiful,
how beautiful,
are the feet of your messengers,
are the words of your good news.
May we watch for those feet—and walk upon them.
May we listen for that news—and speak it ourselves.
May we walk and speak each day
in the beauty of your good news.
