Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,
    for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints;
    but let them not turn back to folly.
Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him,
    that glory may dwell in our land.
Steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
    righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Faithfulness springs up from the ground,
    and righteousness looks down from the sky.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good,
    and our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before him
    and make his footsteps a way.
- Psalm 85 

On this clear morning, we could see the spot where we were headed long before we were near the neighborhood. On this still morning even from the Texas side of the border, we could see the smoke drifting, hovering over the city, hanging over the river. It was a a burn morning at the dump and the smoke formed a thick veil over the area. We go about our business nonetheless, moving forward in the smog. In honesty, I felt much the same, even with the weight of heaviness, pressing on in the haze.
