On the day of my ascension, gratitude! Thank you, mentors and teachers, friends and enemies, mountaintop and desert moments. Thank you, Immanuel, for walking the whole way with me.
On the day of my ascension, praise! to you, red rocks of Sedona; Grand, Bryce and Zion Canyons; You, Animus, Susquahana and Hudson rivers; You, Green, Adirondack, and Ramapo Mountains. Praise to you, Adonai, manifest in all you’ve made.
On the day of my ascension, Love! For you, heart of my heart: Every day loving you, better than the last. For you, blood of my blood: every day more joyous, living with you in it. For you, breath of my breath: every day more inspired, touching language to eternity. Love, for you, Paraclete, every day more transformed, reuniting with you.
On the day of my ascension, Gratitude, Praise, and Love to you, Triune, for life, with all its joys, sorrows and glories. And Gratitude, Praise and Love to you, always, on the day of my return.
