Some day. Someday God will wipe the tears from Rachel’s eyes.
In the godforsaken, quicksand of life,
there is a deafening alleluia rising from the souls
of those who weep,
and of those who weep with those who weep.
If you watch, you will see
the hand of God
putting the stars back in their skies
one by one.
by Ann Weems from Psalms of Lament
