A Brief Excursion into the Spirit

This little song by Norah Jones pretty much nails my faith life of late--particularly these lines:

What did you say?
I know what you were singing
But my ears won't stop ringing
Long enough to hear
Those sweet words
And your simple melody

I just have to hear
Those sweet words
Spoken like a melody

I just want to hear
Those sweet words.

And these:


All your love
Is a lost balloon
Rising up through the afternoon
'Til it could fit on the head of a pin.


Lots of glimpses and longing, with just enough hope to keep me going, but not enough discernment or clarity to . . . to . . .. I don't know.
