Worthlessness skulks about in duplicitous sheets cloaking us in unlined clouds.
Does worth hide in chicken stew, twice-cooked beans, chocolate chip banana bread?
Does worth hide in freshly laundered clothes, recycled containers, sparkling countertops?
Your true nature is preciousness, even at rest.

I love “worthlessness” skulks about in duplicitous sheets…” Wonderful. Worth hiding in the food and domestic chores is right on the mark for all us mothers out here who can so relate to this as our days are full to the brim with them. Then the ending really closes powerfully. We are precious to God. His son died for us because we are that divinely precious. We don’t earn that grace, it is given. This is what I think on when I read this intriguing piece. This helps so much as we think we have not done, been, are enough during the long days of motherhood and wifery and womanhood. We are the daughters of the creator of universes. Thank you for this reminder!!! Lovely and powerful piece. Light and love of Christ in you and all…..
Thank you, Cynthia. I am so glad God can be found in these pieces even when I don’t write his name. That is a very good sign. So glad to have friends on the journey! God is so good to provide and love and care. Many blessings to you!
