Now

"For we see now through a mirror dimly, but then
face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall
recognize as also I was recognised." 1 Cor. 13:12

Now
We walk with slow feet;
Then
We will dance with swift feet.

Now
We grapple with the unknown;
Then
We will rest with the Known.

Now
We live as aliens;
The
We will live as natives.

Now
We voyage blind;
Then
We land sighted.

Now
We stand on dull stones;
Then
We will stand on garden-bright soil.

Father,

Faith
Clears the cliffs from my soul, and
Allows me to knoiw You and myself, dimly;
But, then, throughly.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
