Dear Father,

I have always looked to others to pattern my relationship with you after.  Now you are making it ours.  You have given me back to my cellf, which I now give to you.  It seemed prideful to draw comfort, solace and inspiration from my own writings.  Yet those are the words Your spirit has whispered in my heart.  How could I not be strengthened by them?  How could they not touch cords of love and hope within me, as they are your words to begin with.  Might they help others too, Father?  I leave that up to you.  But its time to ‘come out of the closet’, so to speak, and shine the Light you give me to for glory only ever and always to you, the Source of all that is.  I no longer despair that my life has been wasted.  I have a task now - to Love.  It’s all I’ve ever known how to do.  It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.  Perhaps I’ve known for a long time, but it seemed so unimpressive.  Now I know differently.  Thank you for teaching me your kind of love.  Thank you for teaching me to draw upon your storehouses of Love and not my reserves of fear.  Remove fear from my life, precious Father.  When fear moves out, love moves in.  The less the fear, the more room for love..  Do your thing Papa!  I love you!
