Another reflection arising from a slow, deliberate reading through 1 John.
God is love, and those who remain in love remain in God and God remains in them. ---1 John 4:16b
I want to remain in the refreshing
bath of your love
until I feel it work all the way
of hurt soaked into the
softness of mercy, ache
of suffering soothed and transformed
into the replenishing
balm of wisdom. I emerge,
shriveled fingers and toes, from your
carrying with me
the cleansing grace
of your love.
