sometimes, at Communion


kneel. breathe. think. pray. thank. pray.
look around.
i’m not missing my turn. my chance.
close eyes briefly to focus.
make sure i’m not forgetting anyone.
or anything.
fold hands.
it’s HIM, after all.
HE is there, waiting
to commune with ME.

a sinner.

and HE loves me.
right where i am.
full of faults,
full of judgments
of other people,
of myself.

and yet…

HE loves me.

eyes cast downward.
watching my daughter’s feet
make their way toward


she is excited, too,
knowing HE is there.

becoming overwhelmed
at being in HIS presence.

HIS LOVE becoming more and more
apparent with each slow step
i take.


there i am. looking right at
in the hands of one of his
happy servants.

overwhelming, HIS LOVE for me.

and you.

i will back tears
of happiness
of amazement
of pure “wow-you-love-me-so-much”
YOU paid the ultimate sacrifice for me.

as soon as i feel unworthy, i feel your love
warm me and cover me,
holding my heart in YOUR hands,
covering all the wrongs,
all the bad,
replacing it with golden beauty.

i love YOU, JESUS…
