You are a miracle!

Your chance of being born: 1 in 400 Quadrillion to 10 to the 2,640,000th power.

the cosmos

A bubble burns with nuclear force –

a galaxy is born,

birth of a dynasty of sibling stars –

each beautiful, deadly or benign,

blazing their way in an uncharted dance

marking the conception of a cosmos –

ever-expanding, divine.

life

Seed and ovum both together

deliver the fruit and the child is born,

A unique life, a single venture,

elemental child of a supernova –

And whether by choice or chance

to squander or cherish,

is but a brief and fleeting span.

death

This fragment done, the next commences,

the body knows when it is time

to gently release and unfetter

the atoms that hold the mass together,

Potential energy becomes kinetic

and a fresh dance begins.

home with god

Above, with the planets and beyond

where nothing is static, ever-evolving.

Gestating force, embracing light –

to a universal sacred home

where embryo unfolds its celestial course.

For cosmic dust is to cosmic dust

we were and we are the stuff of stars.

L.D.

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

philippians 3: 20-21 new international version

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

John 14: 2-3 new international version

prayer

Our Father, we were chosen by you right from the very beginning. The opportunity to have been given our life on this earth seems like a remarkable miracle to us, yet you created us and knew us while we were still in our mother’s womb.

May we treasure our time on earth, taking care of it and leading the best life that we can, and as we age with the prospect of death before us, let us have faith in the assurance that it is not the end – you are ready to receive us home, Lord.

May we always be thankful.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
