So too at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. Romans 11:5

those who cannot
see past the end
of broken promises
will find themselves bumping
into your

those who stumble along,
twisting their ankles in
despair's potholes,
will discover you
on your knees,
a trowel in your hand
smoothing out the cement
into the cracks in their

those who carry one
kid on their
hip, with another
about to burst out,
will be invited
to your play

those who populate
the walls
at proms, and the
young men with two
left feet
will win the ballroom

those who can't carry
a tune
(and haven't for the last
60 years or so)
will record a CD
with Susan Boyle;

those who always
see their glass half
and about to be
knocked over,
will do a cannonball
into your pools of
pure grace.
