’I called to the Lord out of my distress,
    and he answered me;’”  Jonah 2:2a

when my tears
turned to dust
in my eyes, you
baptized me with yours;
when my throat
was so sore from
screaming, i was voiceless,
you whispered, ‘i am here;’
when my heart
shattered from the blows
of those i thought
loved me, you
mended it with
stained glass windows
of grace filling the cracks
