That’s the way I love you

Evil calls to evil;  it calls on itself.
Good calls to good; it calls out to itself.

They reside side by side;
Neither will the other abide.

The thing I say is not the thing I want to say…

The thing I write is not the thing I want to write…

The thing I do is not the thing I want to do…

heartsUnless,
the one to whom I speak,
the one to whom I write,
the one for whom I do,
is a child I love.

That’s the way I love you, He said.
I speak as I do,
write as I do,
do for you as I do,
because, my child, I love you like that.

Grow me in that love, Father.
Help me grow in the love that speaks
goodness to all whom you call children.

Amen
