What Have You Overlooked?

Week 8

What Have You Overlooked?


1.   We all benefit from looking up.

2.   One of architecture’s great inventions—centuries ago—is the arch.

3.   The man knows the real angel; that’s why he bought the print, framed it, placed it above. he’s seen him. That’s why he bought

4.   Do you have a nook where your comfort is sure, where your mind is quieted?

5.   We seat ourselves, lean back, look up and feel at ease, sigh maybe. Then we look down, don’t we? Is this true for you?

6.   We are made for worship.

7.   We each have our angel, who is not meant to be denied.


Over the man’s chair
where he finds comfort
with his books
hangs a print
of an angel made
of carved wood—
a statue that in
its real life
stands 12 feet tall.
He’s playing his pipe
in praise—that angel—
as memorialized in
the 150th Psalm.
The man in the chair
sees less of him
than you might think,
as the angel remains
at his back.
Perhaps that’s the point—
acknowledged by his
furtive bow as he
enters the room.
