A letter


He sent a letter, not
knowing if it would fall
into silence, not
be seen by closed eyes, not
be opened by fortified hearts.
He sent a letter, not
knowing if it would arrive, not
discerning if it would be opened, not
seeing if it would be heeded.
He sent a letter, knowing
there was purpose
in the sending.

Made me think right away about Paul's letters which are so vital to the New Testament. Beautiful, Glynn!

the love
you had at first
the Spirit
whispers
and consider
your fall
your repentance
and His grace

I couldn't help but think of the "living letters" we are suppose to be.

I thought of Paul too, but I love Susie's thought. We are living letters.
