“not enough” (a guest post by Laurel Rogers)

My lovely friend Laurel wrote this recently on her facebook page and I begged leave to post it here. It helped me meditate on the infinity of God’s goodness.

not enough

by Laurel Rogers

 

Good
is too little of a word.


It is truth
in Genesis,
Of all that You spoke
Into existence.

Yes, I think it must fit there
Perfectly.

And perhaps it works
For description of tasty delights,
a quick answer to a greeting
on the sidewalk.
Books worth reading,
And melodic life given
to black notes on a page.

But “good” is too small,
Too incomplete
To complete the exclamation
“God is .”
