I have decided to continue on the good news theme. Edwina Gateley is a Catholic poet who nurtures my  spirit. On her website she is described as “a poet, theologian, artist, writer, lay minister and modern-day mystic and prophet. She currently ministers to prostitutes and street people through retreats and outreach.”


Edwina Gateley

Let Your God Love You

Be silent.
Be still.
Alone.
Empty
Before your God.
Say nothing.
Ask nothing.
Be silent.
Be still.
Let your God look upon you.
That is all.
God knows.
God understands.
God loves you
With an enormous love,
And only wants
To look upon you
With that love.
Quiet.
Still.
Be.

Let your God—
Love you.
