Shake the Dust

Last night at our roommate meeting, we did a lectio divina with Psalm 8. One of the parts of this process was to choose a phrase from the scripture passage and meditate on that. The phrase that stuck with me was “from the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise” (Psalm 8:2). As many of you know, I work at a daycare with 3-4 year olds every day now since school is over. I never cease to be amazed by the incredible blessing and simple truth they add to my life. Thinking about all of this, I remembered a spoken word poem I really like. It’s called Shake the Dust and is by a poet named Anis Mojgani. My favorite line is, “For the two-year olds who cannot be understood because they speak half English and half God, shake the dust.”
