This a new meditation in the voice of the one who has a question that doesn’t need an answer. It’s written, of course, in the voice of the Spiritual Traveler. Prayers in this series include: “About the Rainbow,” “About the Heavens” and “About Shabbat.”
Source of awe and wonder,
When did You decide
To make daily miracles so simple,
So gentle, so quiet and so small?
Did our fear of Your Voice
Echoing from the mountain top
Push You away?
Or was this Your plan all along?
To show us Your Glory
In fire and smoke,
In the parted sea,
In the darkness and in the light,
And then to draw away
So that we would
Yearn for You to be near,
So that we would yearn
For your power and might,
For Your holiness
And for Your salvation?
Or are You waiting, patiently,
To return, again, with signs
And with wonders?
