If you loved me...

John 14:28
You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I.

If you loved me...
You would rejoice
If you loved me...
You would know
If you loved me...
You would understand 
If you loved me...
You would rejoice
God even with our hindsight
Even when we know the rest of the story
Even when, daily, you surround us
with your love and beauty,
Still we do not get it.
We fail to make the connections
We are slow to join the dots
And so we miss the joy
of loving and being loved
by the one whose name is love.
This day, O God,
Open our heart and mind and soul
to notice the presence
of your Holy Spirit
with which you confront us
in mystery and love.
