The Time

Now is the time for for planting gardens.
For backyard chickens and compost piles.

It's the time for family dinners and neighborhood meetings.
Library visits and impromptu concerts.

For is the time to take care of your body.
To feed it well.
To move it often.
To make it strong.

It's the time for a sharp mind.
A clear conscious.
And a huge heart.

It's a time to listen.
A time to scream.

It's a time for protests.

It's a time to buy local.
Buy used.
Buy less.

For hugs.
For heart ache.

It's a time to give and keep giving.
Your time.
Your money.
Your talent.
To give it all.

Because "The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love." Psalm 33:5

And so I will take to the streets. I will call my representatives. I will invite my neighbors for dinner. I will remember my cloth grocery bags.

I will let my love lead me in hopes that my life will be a testament to my beliefs.

"If we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."
