where other than here?

where would i rather be

than here?

for where other than here

can there be all

all that can be sought,

wanted,

hoped for,

than here…

for here

right here

You are. You the I of all I Am.

and would i not rather be

an usher at your door,*

a beholder, a welcomer, a watch

to herald, receive, witness, embrace

all that You call forth,

all that You send?

than any possible other thing?

this is no dormant day

no grasping, bated breath of wondering

whether good will come,

whether my time will come,

when things will be what they were meant to be,

watch,

see,

behold,

usher,

give thanks,

say yes,

open your eyes

the great Giver gives,

you are that giving,

the giving is given

no strings,

never fettered,

intended,

meant,

adored,

received

utter uttering praise

*I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God. Psalms 84:10
