Blessed of blesseds, this is fair warning: I’m coming for you.
I’m coming for a dose of mercy and compassion, because I need to receive it and be reminded to extend it.
I’m coming for a lap full of cuddles, because I need to rejoice in them and be reminded to offer them.
I’m coming for a heart full of love, because I need to be full with it, so that I can overflow with it.
I’m coming for a bucket full of patience, because I’ve been a bit short of it, and need to practice the extension of it.
I’m coming for a mind broadened by wisdom, because there is always more to learn, and in learning more to share.
I’m coming with a soul hungry for redemption,
eyes ready to apprehend wonder,
ears ready to hear laughter,
feet ready to trod the path of light,
arms ready to embrace joy,
a body ready to receive rest.
I’m coming for you, Blessed. You’ve been warned.
