Do you know that poem, As Kingfishers Catch Fire?
If you don't, I recommend stepping into your introverted, poetry-enlightened self and reading it. Just wait to be tucked into the floral folds of all the beautiful words:
I say more: the just man justices
Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces;
Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is -
Christ - for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men's faces.
This day was these words. It spoke the truth that each of us is Christ, all leading one another to heaven through our lives laid out on earth.
Maire and Peter, may you continue to lead one another upward through your lovely marriage, blossomed in beauty.
