Grace called my name, so I answered.
It asked me to be kind to myself. I obliged.
It asked me to be patient with others. I agreed.
It asked me to trust. I said I will.
It told me to focus on the blessings in my present. I said I will try.
It demanded I relax a bit. I said “I’m working on it.”
It requested I “practice the pause.” I paused, and said “okay.”
It recommended I get comfortable with my mess. I shrugged and accepted the direction.
It implored me to affirm my worth and that of those I love and to do it daily. I said I’d go along with that.
It begged me to accept
and all my days as they come. I promised I will.
Grace called my name, so I answered, and if calls yours, I hope you will too.
