This morning
In the sunshine
I went to get the recycling bin from the curb.
A middle aged couple was walking by.
Arms swinging, out for exercise
We said hello.
I turned
to bring the bin back to the shade of my house
and behind me I heard
an ongoing conversation
and then
her quiet laugh.

In the showers of bad news,
discouragment, struggles,
disappointments and
genuine sadness this morning has delivered

Her laugh
their easy happiness
is the Still Small Voice.

And I am hearing.

Oh yes my dear!

Amen! He is there if we have ears to hear.
