It was not the bush, that was green and damp while fire was all around it, that changed Moses - it was that you knew his father.
Walking on the water, when they were about to sink, wasn’t what changed Jesus’ apostles, it was that you were not afraid.
It wasn’t the beauty of your home, a cathedral of beauty and glory, that changed everything about how I knew you and even knew my own self - it was that you knew what I had done and my struggles and that you loved me.
It is not all the memories and things you have done and the answers you have given that keeps changing me - it is that you are still here beside me in the darkness of my night.
