Divine Love-

I heard someone describe themselves as “the exact right amount of the most”.
Not extra.
Not too much.
Not basic.
Not in need of quieting or shouting.
The exact right amount of the most.

May your bi children feel that in their bones this week.
May your asexual dear ones find a home in that description.
May your beloveds of all sexualities rest securely in that self-knowledge.
May your offspring across the gender spectrum see themselves in that truth.

At home in your mercy, we are the exact right amount of the most.
Loved, beloved, loving.

May we hear it. May we trust it. May we live it.
