When I lay on our bed and I liquid murmur that I am not smart enough for any of this, that I fail miserably and everyday and I’m getting so much wrong, and how do you really invest just one life and what about the laundry? —
The Farmer he draws me onto his chest and he strokes back my hair, wraps one strand around a finger… and he is quiet. Because sometimes it’s only silence that simply waits that can hear God.
The man is a farmer. He feels wind and he knows rain. He breathes prayers. He pulls me close.
It’s after a long quiet that he whispers it into my caverns,
“Remember? He asks for Praise not Perfection… Grace not Grindstone…”
And I remember The God Babe who comes for a tree, to take a nail in the hand, a back to the bark, and how it’s the enemy who crumbled and in this there is always rest and sweetest relief…
The knowing that He comes.
That Christ always comes…
