No. 10

Had been sick for weeks

“Heal my body,” I prayed and

God placed me afar.


Fresh air and changes

Of pace, places, people. Now?

Healthy and renewed.


This extravagance

I so don’t deserve, yet my

Open hands received.


A lesson for me:

“Meredith, receive in full

Yes, in your weakness


I know you like the

Stripes on zebras that run while

Your tears stream in awe


You’re my beloved,

Stop such striving and receive:

You’re Love-ly to me.”
