Like Little Children

We bring our feelings like little children
into the embrace of love.
Gathering together the stragglers from the past
that are running here and there,
we give them direction as to how to behave.
We do this lovingly, not shamefully,
bringing them to God for healing.

Leftover feelings are things we could not face
in the past that can be faced, now,
as our soul awakens.
In becoming love, we absorb them into ourselves
in a way that was not possible before,
lovingly, and yet with guidance,
because love can absorb all things,
can endure all things,
and in the presence of limitation,
can remain steadfast and triumphant.
