Once again, my wonderful and delightful cousin, Kathy, has kindly put her encouraging and inspirational thoughts in writing. She has composed a short poem and wanted to share it here on this blog. I hope you find her kind and encouraging words uplifting for you today. Now, once again, here is my cousin Kathy in her own words:

The Dream – A Gift

One night I had a dream that I met God at Heaven’s gate,

 “Do you think that you deserve to enter my Kingdom?”

“No, I do not,” I said. “I have done so many wrongs – too many of them – in my life.”

I hung my head, feeling the weight of shame heavy on my heart.

“Remember, my beloved child, I will always love you.

Nothing will keep me from it because I know every hair on your head.

I know the hurts you have felt. When you shed tears, I shed them along with you.

Nobody knows your true heart better than me.”

With that, he threw open the gate and the most beautiful light enveloped me.

I bowed my head once again. “Father, I want to be worthy of your precious gift.”

“My precious child, don’t you see?” God asked.

“You are worthy because I know you and you know me.

Give me your shame and I give to you a beautiful life eternal.”
