Prayer 586

The prayer series


You say,
“I am the vine;
you are the branches.
If you remain in me
and I in you,
you will bear much fruit;
apart from me you can do nothing.”*

So I go out,
I want that I be in you.

I eat bánh bèo at a tiny stall with a couple of tiny chairs.
When it’s rain,
there is only one dry seat,
which is under a tiny eave
and the eave does not belong to the stall owner.

That’s my special restaurant.
It belongs to a Nguyen Dynasty family.

You know,
when I know the chefs and waiters are a Nguyen Dynasty family,
I feel how lucky I am.

They cook so well.
They serve me so devotedly.
Their restaurant is in the sun.
So great.

I like to have breakfast here
because of these people themselves?
or because I want to be in you?
or both?

I don’t know.
I only know
I am good when I am in you,
I am in the sun,
I am in the rain,
I am near the green,
I am near the tender things.



* John 15:5
