God said, “Repeat after me…”
God said it. The He said, “Now, repeat after me.”
God showed it. Then He said, “Now you try.”I bent my head and furrowed my brow. Sweat beaded on my forehead and tears splattered onto my page.
God said, “My love. Don’t try so hard.”And I breathed in the breath just breathed out by God. I did. I erased. I did again. I laughed. And I looked. There was God smiling at me.
And God said, “There now. That’s just as I showed you.”
And it was good.
