Thursday Meditations: If Your Mercy…

If your mercy is like an ocean

then I wish to be swimming in the deepest, wildest part

If your mercy is like a bottomless well

then I wish to jump, free-falling through it

If your mercy is like a beautiful garden

birds flitting amidst the bright colors and scents

then I wish to be lying below the lilacs

embalmed in their purple delight.

If your mercy is like a mother and child

I wish to be the child

held tenderly in loving security.

If your mercy is like death resurrected

then I wish to be stumbling out of the grave

If your mercy is like a Father

then I wish to be your daughter

listening to your stories

my head upon your knee.

    Beautiful. I have been thinking about Mercy too – and it’s associations with precious oil. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Thank you for sharing God’s mercies that are new every morning.
    I am back in Melbourne. Visited NC among other places and loved the people, pine trees, so green and lush. It’s beautiful!
