Eyes to See by Raymond A. Foss

Would that we would each, all of us,
especially me, would have eyes, clear eyes
that would seek out, that would see your presence
in the dance of the snowfall, the changing of the leaves
from green to orange, yellow, red, to see you God
in the blowing of the milkweed seeds
carried by invisible winds
that I would have eyes to see you
in my neighbor’s smile
in their laugh, in their tears
Eyes that would see your presence, your hand
in the laws of nature, in the circumstances, the history
the pages of my life, each waking moment
Would that I would have eyes too, to see your presence
in the words of scriptures, the story of the people,
of your son, his life, his sacrifice,
all part of your unwinding plan
our story too, as you had willed so long ago
Eyes to see you, your face, your presence
in the creation, in the living out,
and in the coming of the age that will be

Unison Prayer, written by Pastor Ruth L. Foss,
“Creator, Sustainer, Almighty God, you who are the giver
of all wisdom. Enable us to set aside the world to worship
you in your temple. We pray that you would give us eyes to
see your presences in all things around us, ears to hear
your still small voice, and a heart that is pliable to your
molding so that we may worship you in Spirit and in truth.
It is is the name of the babe in the manger so long ago, our
Lord Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.”
Psalm 148
Isaiah 61:10-62:3
Galatians 4:4-7
Luke 2:22-40
John 1:1-14
and sermon, “What a Great Plan!”,
