I remember that line, in your story, about sighs too deep for words….

I’ve always loved that.
I have those sighs.
And more than sighs.
I have screams to rage-y too be contained by mere words.
Tears too full for words to break through.
Aches too painful to be described with words.
Songs too strong for lyrics.
Needs too numerous to list.
Moments too powerful to be interrupted with explanation.
Laughs too loud for conversation
Love, too much to…
God, you of many names, you who no name can fully contain, or represent, or express, or…
Be in our screams, tears, aches, songs, moments, laughs, and love. Be in our….
Amen.
