"Order is a lovely thing,
on disarray it lays its wings,
teaching simplicity to sing."
I see order all around.
Not hierarchical, tyrannical, authoritarian order that seeks to control and impose.
But the creative order that seeks to nourish and nurture,
living symbiotically not as a parasite,
enabling each living creature to reach its fulness of life.
A creative order that honours and respects every stage of life,
and seeks to honour the inherent dignity of each created being.
A creative order that treats with greater care
the anawim and dispossessed.
May we pause to consider order in our own lives,
and rejoice in the simplicity it brings to our daily living.
