knowledge and not knowledge

Well, there's that, too.

I learned this morning about the importance of doing God's will with joy, not just doing God's will.

I always thought at least that, the sacrifice, was untouchably right.

In reality it was among the worst of what I did.

I let a person down and called it righteousness.

May God know that,

however blind, ignorant, and harmful it turned out,

I only ever tried to be good --

to her, to him, to Him.

I only ever loved.

Have mercy on my intentions.

This is for you,



  1. we should talk more often. I no longer have any idea what's going on in that mind of yours.

  2. Yeah, that's unfortunately the case for almost everyone...

    I'll chat with you soon on Skype or something, Sarah; I'm sure you also have some life stories to share
