Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or are you envious because I am generous?’ So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
Those who have been here forever
and those who have joined more recently
have equal status in the eyes of God.
Those who spend all their time here
and those who pop in and out as the notion takes them
are equally loved and blessed by God.
For God's love and regard are not rewards to be earned,
but gifts freely given.
No holds barred.
No conditions attached.
That knowledge is at once freeing and frustrating,
reassuring and incredible,
grounding and earth shattering.
There only one thing for it –
Enjoy, share and let God take care of the rest.
