Grandma’s Hug

“Thank you God.  Thank you.”

Again and again my mind said

“Thank you, God.”


Then came the peace,

apart from me, yet in me.

From mind to heart and back again,

all-embracing, all-consuming.


From this well then flowed

compassion like I’ve never known.

Felt first for those nearby,

it moved, unbounded then, to all.


He had the whole world in His hands

and let me hold on, too.


In this love stream were no impediments,

no sin-shoals of the self

to block the flow.


With all I became one,

held close in a great big

Grandma’s hug of Grace.
