Heard in Prayer:
Child of mine:
You say that you have not done enough to match my grace.
My Grace is sufficient; that's why it's called grace.
You say that you have mostly failed in your callings.
I say that by Grace you serve
and by Grace you offer what you will.
You say that your mind wanders too much,
that you are too much a hermit and too little a friend.
I say that my Grace fills the space between your words.
I say that you are beloved on earth.
I say you are wholly mine.
I say you are a strand
in the very fabric of my purpose
here in this world of now.
