A hush fell over the store. A timeless moment, almost–dare I say it? Sacred. His radiance was like a beacon, a lighthouse guiding me through Accessories and Women’s Uniforms/Vests/Outerwear. It pulsed, flaring in time with his heart.
There are times when, if you’re lucky, you will catch a glimpse of the Transcendent in Savers. Sometimes Goodwill. Never the Salvation Army, no matter what they tell you, because the Transcendent doesn’t like their pricing structure or stance on some basic human rights issues, and they wouldn’t lower the price on a sofa the Transcendent really wanted. When you do, though, you must approach it cautiously, avert your gaze like Moses, lest you be struck blind or have your face melted off blasphemous-nazi style.
Do not breathe. The moment might pop, like a bubble.
Just come humbly, perhaps even walk barefoot upon the ground, and know…in your heart, and, yes, even in the evidence of your senses…that you walk in the presence of God.
Maybe I should have saved this one for Halloween. It’s hard to say.
