arizona - part two


I stretch to meet the sun.
i didn't belong here last night.

everything was shadowed and dark and there were no stars.
these nights
are the ones in which i long for you the most.
i look back on all of these letters, all of these hopelessly terrified words,
and every one of them seems selfish.
across miles and miles, years and years, i am looking for your pain
but it's so hard to see you!
i look in the mirror and it's
me.

Love is selfless and i am not selfless...

yet.

oh Abba! clear my vision and graft eternity into these tired
bones, for i long to see as You see.

Love is selfless. yes, yes He is!
and we are becoming His children, tired as we are.
even from here, i know i love you.
it's different from every other love i have seen, every love i know.

i stretch to meet the sun.
have a good day, okay?

ps. so i started this book in which i write letters to my husband? and this is one i wrote this morning.
arizona is treating me so well. pictures from a cupcake adventure tomorrow!
