Always loving you

I'm doing it all, Lord:
I go on retreats,
I write in my journal,
I read good books,
I track my dreams...
why then am I still so... me?

Look up, my child:
look out the window,
step outside.
Breathe the air,
and feel the sun on your face.
Know that "me" is all you need;
that who you are today is enough;
that it is enough to still be listening for my love.
Patience, my child --
I am with you always,
even in your imperfection,
and I am always,
loving you.

It's wonderful how your poems always remind us of His love, no matter what.
