“You laughed the stars into the sky”
Only now, this minute, do I realize
This, and understand joyful truth:
You are God who loves, cherishes, knows me
Your misfit, orphaned child of scarred mystery
You are the Happy God*, my Heavenly Father
And even if I see no stars, clouds concealing
I will listen for, hear, the twinkling of Your laughter
The merriment You feel when You look upon me
With tender care, covenant grace and peace.
