I saw

I saw that God is everything that is good and energising.

God is our clothing

that wraps, clasps and encloses us

so as never to leave us.

God showed me in my palm

a little thing round as a ball

about the size of a hazelnut.

I looked at it with the eye of my understanding

and asked myself,

“What is this thing?”

And I was answered,

“It is everything that is created.”

I wondered how it could survive since

it seemed so little it could suddenly

disintegrate into nothing.

The answer came,

“It endures and ever will endure,

because God loves it.”

And so everything has being

because of God’s love.
