Transformation Time

Transformation Time
Epiphany 2; John 2:1-11
Sometimes, like Mary at the wedding feast,
I see a need in those for whom I care,
and point it out to God, hoping at least,
if I dare ask, the cupboard won’t stay bare.
Like Jesus, God might say, “Now what concern
is that for you or me? It’s not my hour.”
Oh, let me love like Mary; let me learn
a patience that still hopes for grace to shower.
“Do what he tells you,” Mary dared to say,
and they put water in and drew out wine.
The steward thought it strange at end of day
to offer drunken guests a drink so fine.
At transformation time, one task is mine –
to draw the water, trusting in the wine.
