day 206

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39

not yesterday,
which molds under
   the sink in the garbage,
or tomorrow,
which hangs in
   the closet waiting
   to be put on;
not politicians
who could care less
   about anyone but themselves,
or celebrities
who will be who
   others want them to be
   for a price;
not weary, aging bodies,
not foolishness who
   sticks out a foot to trip us,
not our pride which
grows larger with
every lie we tell ourselves;

nothing
can keep us apart
from God
because of
everything Jesus
did for us.
