If the season is right
and the fruit of waiting is ripe.

If we both see ourselves completely surrender to God
If we finally loosen our grip
on our insecurities, anxieties and fears.

If both of us are fearless and doubtless of His love
can conquer the myriad feelings and emotions of our own blood.

If we already surpass all the temptations of our youth
visualize our vulnerability,
surrender our lust and live with purity.

If we already keep His promise
and kneel our knees to the cross
living with His commandments

If our souls finally unite as the universe unfolds
even if it's improbable in our own time and space

if He already says, "Go on my child"

And see you standing still at the edge of the aisle
Can I finally say?
I'm the missing part of your ribs.

Your slow morning matters too

just simply sitting, walking, listening, roaming absorbing, and taking time.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
