day 145

"Abide in me as I abide in you."  John 15:4a

because we are
                 sure
you won't let us
   put our feet up
      on the coffee table,
   stand at the fridge
      and drink milk right
      from the container,
   leave our dirty socks
      scattered on the floor,
                 we
just aren't ready
to move into your heart,
                 or
have you move
into ours, if you
   are going to spend
   all your time
straightening up
   everything.
